I've never looked at that part of the manual all that closely, so I figured it was an SST, and really precise.

Do the 13BT and the 3B use common injector lines? If so, I may have an old damaged 3B line that I could cut. Maybe. I need to inspect the seat to see if the line is what was unsalvageable, or if it was the seat on the IP instead. It's been so long that I don't remember exactly what the problem was now--but it was one or the other.

But if Central Motive can whip one up, I'd do that in a heartbeat.
