    Reattaching oil tube to Leslie motor oil "pan"

    Does anyone have any tips on how to reconnect the oil tube that comes down from the Leslie motor oil pan/wick at the top? It's the thing that goes vertically from the top to the bottom of the motor in the attached pic. I have one pan with a missing tube, and was hoping to permanently reattach it somehow. Superglue seems ineffective as there's just not much to work with on the outside. Then again, with enough superglue, anything is possible!

    I'd appreciate any better ideas...

    Can it be soldered?

    If not use some epoxy super weld for steel.

      The duct tape of adhesives is called "JB Weld".
      this looks like a perfect job for it.

      Yours must be a newer model. Mine never had such a tube.

        I actually came to find out that the tube is more of a convenience item, so I chose to go without it and just oil the motor directly. It does require pulling the motor out, but overall it's not too inconvenient for a once a year servicing.

          Geezer, those are standard equipment on pre-1963 (single speed) Leslies that use the motors that aren't the very first ones used in the 30A, early 31H, Etc models.
