Maybe check your prep file for the base analog and make sure it has connect0/connect1 information? I forget exactly how it works, but you can find info on it in the leap section of the manual. If I remember correctly, these things tell leap how to connect the backbone between residues.

Good luck!

Subject: [AMBER] Replacing DNA base with analog
I am trying to preform a 10ns molecular dynamics simulation on duplex DNA
containing a base analog.  I have the frcmod for the base analog
nucleotide and the prep file.  I have tried deleting all atoms for the
base I want to replace and changing the backbone atoms name to that of the
analog.  I then ran this through tLEAP.  The result was tleap generating a
file with the base not bonded to the backbone. Does anyone have any
suggestions? or a better way to insert a base analog into the DNA
