OH NOOOOOOOO possible branch tube cracked!!!

Well another update. I replaced the standpipe repeated air test and can still hear a hissing sound coming from where the stand pipe screws into the one piece welded block on the branch tube under the head. Just for a test I lowered the air to 50psi and held my hand over the stand pipe hole and its coming from right below it. I thought maybe it was the HPOP leaking and it was resonating from there into the pipe but I dont think so. Not good, not good at all. I have to access the HPOP and put air directly to the branch tube at the back of the fitting at the HPOP from there to isolate it between the pump and the soldered tube fitting. If its a branch tube I'm selling the truck AS IS!!!!!! anyone ever plumb flex braided lines over the motor, go directly into the valve cover and block off the stand pipes on these motors???????? This is a bunch of BS with these motors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
