I've just pulled mine of today and found a crack too, 10mm in length. Surely welding must be the way to go, a replacement one is just going to crack too. Thats what I think I'm going to do.

TD04 straight flange drawing

Does anyone have some drawings with dimensions for making a TD04 straight flange plate?

Also, do the TD04, TD04HL etc all share the same bolt pattern and outlet diameter?

Cheers

+1 on the heat gun idea, do it once and it lasts as long as it did when it came out the factory.
