    The first photo shows the outlet on my 2.5n/a in the 109 with a series rad, is there a bespoke piece of pipe that will join the 2 or is the only solution as shown in photo 2 on the 88sw with a 2.5n/a (yes I am a fan of the 2.5n/a;)).
    The series outlet piece i.e straight up seems to be stupidly expensive so looking for another way out, I managed to get a pipe on but just temporary so I can make sure everything works as it should.
    Cheers

    Try e-bay and get 2 elbows plus a piece of ally or SS tube. you can then rotate the elbows until its sits nicely. Only other option is trawling through autojumbles, I had some success but its pot luck.
    You can get silicone tube that is made to look like rubber, its really good stuff.

    Good idea I'll try an elbow or 2 might not be pretty but will be better than what I've got.
