LPR/Manifold help

Leaking through the gripframe, applied teflon tape to the threading of the LPR and replaced o-ring on it, relubed and put back in. No change. Also, the manifold screw sticks out and scrapes into the metal of my LPR if I turn it in too far.

Any advice? Help?

the one that screws in horizontally and is visible when looking at where air enters from the LPR.

That should never stick out, so based on what you're telling me here's my GUESS as to what is going on:

You have a very early manifold that was drilled and capped off with set screws. The early Diablo/Aardvark ones were this way. Somehow, over time, one of these has started to work itself loose. Not only is this a potential manifold leak from the air it's supposed to cap off, but it's biting into your LPR so it can't form a complete seal as it hits the manifold.

Can you make this 'horizontal' set screw go back in? Like, with a small allen key?

I've tried. it seems that even a .5 doesnt work. I'll try again, but where would I get a replacement manifold?

More or less can't unless you find someone parting out or you buy a donor matrix.

I'd buy from Harju. Though getting a gen-e which has all the other parts you could ever need for $50-80 would definitely make more economic sense.

If it helps, the guy didnt list it with a gold bolt. I took a chance at 60 hell it already had the SCM so I figured I was up anyway. When it arrived I took a look inside and BAM Gold one of my best "buys" I have had.

I bought my KAPP for $300, sold the slam for $200, the AK's for $75, so in essence I paid $25 dollars suckers!

Then on the other hand, I just bought 2 Gen E's for $50 shipped. One had an Aardvark frame that I traded for an Ebladed nightcast cocker and a ST tremor series body kit, of course I added $50......
