If possible, replace the fin. Do not bother to completely reattach it to the tubes. It is
not normally possible to restore the thermal connection after removing the fin.
If the leak is in the riser tube, and the fin can be removed from the tube, it can be
repaired. The best approach is to cut out the fin and the damaged portion of the
tube. Braze (not solder!) a section of new tubing into place with two couplings
(Figure 5-8).
