Thread: Leaking Coolant
03-24-2009, 12:39 AM #1
As I was removing all the air hoses to get to the supercharger I noticed some coolant on the bottom of the hull. Tracing the drip to the hose where it connects to the rideplate ( see pics) I am pretty sure its just leaking from the hose clamp. Is this common and what would the best fix be?? I was thinking of jsut adding another clap under or above the one thats there.

that is very common.
carefully cut off the old clamp with heavy duty snips, or a dremel.
then put on a new stainless steel worm gear style clamp.
open the clamp and wrap it around the hose, then tighten.
you DO NOT want to pull the hose off the remove/replace the old clamp.
if you doo, you will drain lots of antifreeze!!!!

you can easily squeeze the spring clamp with pliers, then push it down off teh rubber hose completely, then cut it safely.
looks liek your hoses could be pushed a bit farther onto the hose barb.
push them all teh way down before putting on worm gear clamp
