    clamps

    Dont forget to inspect/change your clamps on routine maintenance guys. Especially you saltwater guys.
    Took my free flow tube off and had it double clamped on both ends with Tridon worm drive all SS clamps, but they still had several bad rust areas on them, one was ready to break.
    Replaced them with these nice SS HD turbo hose T bolt style clamps. Much heavier duty and no worm drive to strip out or rust through.
    Clamp breaking at the wrong time would be bad..

    Great idea Ross! Especially the clamp on the front of the air box. Rusty clamp breaks, filter falls off and clamp goes in the OE air box and gets stuck on the butterfly of the throttle body!Lee

    on the list of winter projects. going to replace all the hose clamps. some are still original from 04.

    anyone using the oekiter (sp) clamps like the seadoos? i was thinking about putting them on the hoses in the back so i don't really have to worry about them. never really seen them rust liek the worm gear clamps either

    Fenn, I am using the stainless worm clamps on all the hoses back behind the battery box except for the FF, I`m using T bolts... so far so good...

    Dave I originally had the FF with double worm clamps on each end, until I found the clamps leaking at the waterbox, not alot, but enough to see some water in the hull along with what looked like pepper, which I thought was carbon. after removing and inspecting the seal, water/exhaust had indeed past thru the clamped area and now I have the T bolts on there...
