Re: Resealing/Replacing Beckson Ports?

HB, if it is just the gasket that is leaking, those are replaceable and they do wear out. If it is the seal around the port itself that is leaking, the only way to really cure that is by removing and rebedding the entire port. Patching and plugging never really solves that problem.
