Question Damaged tubes

I have valves separate a bit the crystal of the plastic base and I would like to receive advice on which type of gluel is better to use.

Sometimes, a little acetone or MEK will reactivate the old cement. If that does not work, try a small amount of fast setting, liquid, cyanoacrylate, such as "Crazy Glue".

You can use termo pipe about 2-3 cm, covering part of glace and part of base.....and warm it. I thing it is the best.
