Use the newer/better spring clamps and make sure the pipes are properly aligned. I've heard it's excessive vibration, poor alignment, worn mounts, cheap and/or over torqued clamps that create the breaking of the clamps.

pretty sure it was overtightened,i'd just had that connection apart but not that clamp to resure the dry cell battery,when i reassembled it i gave that clamp a twist as well,my bad!!!!!

The good news is you caught it before you had a real problem.
