The sulfur will dissipate with time. A diacetyl rest just means warming it up before you lager it. Maybe 62 F or so for a few days. It will help eliminate any diacetyl that may have formed...

I'd sure try to redo those before I'd take it apart. If you wipe the joints and reapply solder when you reheat the joint it will draw the solder into the joint. As the existing solder begins to...

I bought a ten gallon megapot for my bk. Really wish I had gotten a fifteen (and I only do 5 gallon batches). My hlt is 30 qts and my mlt is a 48 qt cooler. I batch sparge and they are big enough.
