Other than the whole thing looks like a train wreck? ;)

No. Anything from the cartridge bay to the pump. Most likely captop/head/manifold/damper/tubing. I think I have already told this.

What is the part number for the 8 tubs that come off the dampers? and what is the part number for the Y-shaped splitters they connect too?

is the spec on the pipe size and material wise so iI could maybe source it from a hardware store?

There are no measurements in the manuals, you could just measure it and go check a special store, don't rely on home depot, theirs may not be solvent resistant.

Very likely a hair or something else causing a deflected nozzle. Check with a good lamp.

Perhaps a tiny bit. Try lowering the ink limit.

Should heater setting be set to "use printer setting" or "use default media settings"?

In the colour managment section at the bottom of quality settings in VW should I have "specify profile and ignore default" ticked or untucked if using a profile supplied to my by All Print Supplies to my LG media?
