GTV, Duetto air plenum hose clamp question

Anyone know the correct length of the romablok clamp on the air plenum to air filter crossover hose? there are 2 needed. I beleive the length was stamped on them. I am looking for originals.

Steve

Hey Steve....are you using one of the new reproduction crossover hoses?
I bought one of these and the original clamps (96mm) are too short! Seems that the original hose is thinner than the new ones.

'64 Guilia Spider
'67 GTV
'68 Giulia Super

The clamps on my Spider Junior are original and the same as a '67 Duetto. They are Roma Blok with "96" and the superscrip "5" next to the 6. Perhaps 96.5? Anyway, that's what it says.

Just for illustration purposes ... note that I tend to use tiny little clear ziplocks just to make sure they don't ping off and disappear. I wouldn't have a clue where to find some more. The cross-over tube was purchased by the PO about 8 or 9 years ago from one of the parts suppliers in the UK and I believe it's an original item. As yet I haven't got around to replating them properly (I'd love to have some items like this plated in dull cadmium, but that's now illegal over here unless it's for the military). I think there might be a little freedom to adjust the tension on the clamps by pinching together or opening out the two wire 'arms', but I've not found that necessary.

Alex.

p.s. I bought a handful of these Romablok 'spring' clamps, but in 20mm size, NOS, in Imola a year or so ago. No idea what they're for but I figured they might be useful some day.
