    Hiya Bombermike, I had the same problem, Nige and Al gave me a top tip.

    Clean the holes extremely well, (I used a Dremel), then Paint the holes, I used Motip Satin Black, put some acid free vaseline on yer O rings and ease yer metal pipe back into position, I did it when it was warm when the rubbers were nice and soft.

    Job was a cracker.....And my old metal pipe thingie was WELL FUCKED and had to be taken out using massive amounts of pressure.
    Birdie num num........

    Hyst grease the O rings and the holes in the block and evenly tap the coolant bar in with a dead blow hanner!
