GT3 Coolant Leak

We had a coolant port blow out on a GT3 this weekend at Hallett.  Dumped a little coolant everywhere, but other than a mess, nothing was hurt.  Tore into it tonight to see what it was.  I still can’t believe Porsche glues this port into the housing.  Hopefully parts will arrive soon.

The offending port.

And out of the car.

Glued?  Seriously?

Where this thing should be stuck.  We will replace it with a factory new piece, but I am going to repair the old one and put it in the spare track bin.  Should be able to come up with some better bonding material than Porsche used.
