Re: In-Tank fuel hose replacement
I received my hoses (2 sets x 2 hoses) a couple of days ago. 10 days for postage ex US, very good service. The steel clamps for the hose look very good, screw type with a square nut captive in the clamp and a tail extending to give 100% clamping around the full circle. With the hose material being thinner and less able to compress, it will be important to correctly position the clamps and also to lubricate the clamp screw with oil. I've seen others attempt to tighten dry clamps and much of the applied torque on the screw is lost to friction, clamp appears tight when in fact the screw thread is tight and binding.
