Mine broke exactly along that line, underneath the boot, where you cant see it, so It crawled from the Outlet to the inlet, When I found It was broke, well, I had a Crack along all the way like that one, and it went from the intake to the outlet, a nice crack going round the outlet, and one half way round the inlet!!!That was all I could see , ´cause when I took the clamps out …well it disintegrated in my hands like if it was made of ashes !!! That´s why I don’t have pics at the moment
although it feels nice to find the problem, and it´s relative easy-replace-the-sucker-part-number-666
Mine cracked right where Panther's did. My crack(s) were much smaller. Mine were all on the inside of the boot. I had 6 small cracks all were from the lip of the boot right on the inner side where it's clamped on. I spread the cracks open as much as I could, filled them with permatex gasket maker and let it dry. It seems to have worked so far. My boot was'nt leaking in the first place, me finding it and putting a band-aid on it should prolong its failure.
