Adjacent to the problem flange pipework should be slackened to allow the pipe to be aligned. Any incorrectly positioned brackets should be adjusted after the pipe is refitted. Ensure newly fabricated gaskets are of the same thickness as the old ones. Changing gasket thickness may lead to pipework misalignment.
