    Air reservoir hope repair

    How can I repair a hole about the size of my hand in the air reservoir of my M&H Liszt 1200? Will I have to recover it completely? I am not able to recover the whole thing right now. It had an old repair where leather was glued over the hole. This old repair has rotted. I have tried glueing a new patch over if but it will not stay. I don't know the type of leather that it was repaired with. I don't know if it was glued with hide glue. I tried water to remove the old patch without success.

    Bite the bullet and get the reservoir re-covered. It's very easy but a long job to get the bellows out for access. Will take 2 strong people to remove the action, as it is enormous, delicate, and heavy.
