    Get proper 1/8" spill pipe from a motor factors and not the ****e off Ebay. The spill nipple cone is 4 mm in diameter proper spill pipe will never come off. If you remove spill pipes you MUST shorten them slightly to form a new seal area. As the seal area will be damaged on removal and the pipe will leak. Or fit new pipes.

    Make sure the spigot is not cracked where you have been pulling it about to get pipe on and off.
