Default Intake pipe

Well I had a weird issue at the plane this weekend. I went to get everything ready for when the new exhaust shows up, I found that the #1 cylinder (left rear) intake tube I could rock back and forth slightly at the upper flange. So I thought maybe the gasket was bad, took off the two bolts, installed new gasket and torqued to specs, still has movement and all others are tight. Any ideas what could cause this. I see there is a swaging tool to expand tube at lower edge but cant really find any info on the upper with movement. The engine is an IO360C1C in a PA28R200 N32552. I know I will need to have my A&P over but just looking for some ideas. Don't see any cracks or dings anywhere. Thanks Again

Big oring at the bottom and a flange and gasket at the top. The top must be cracked or something as it will not allow wiggle if solid.

That's the strange thing, didn't see any cracks, seems tight at bottom, It was hot yesterday in the hangar so maybe I need to look a little more at it, are the flanges available separately or do you have to get the whole pipe? Any idea for part number for #1 cyl left rear

What engine? I've seen a lot of those parts on eBay.

Bolts may be the wrong ones. They could be bottoming out in the hole before getting tight on the flange. Are you missing any lock washers on the bolts. Try slightly shorter bolts and best to check the manulas to see what size they should be.
