Hi all, on 1 of my carbs (front left sitting on bike) the manifold has come apart from the rubber connecting to the carb. I've searched and these are discontinued Tried ebay but they all look knackered and the only NOS is for the rear carbs, How can I attach it back without getting any air leaks? I was thinking using hot glue and pressing it back into place. Would this work or does anyone have any better suggestions?

As this part is going to be subject to vibration, I would have thought some kind of silicon sealant would have been better, it also gets pretty hot down there so hot gun glue is likely to get very soft due to the heat, where as silicon will not be affected by the heat.. My vote would be for a clear silicon sealant, preferably one that is resilient to oil/gas..
