Greetings!
As my Verde gets closer to the engine being reinstalled in the car, I want to get some factory hose clamps for it. Presently the car has a mishmash of cheap band clamps, stripped or rusty factory ones, and a few good ones that were preserved by years of leaking fluids and miracle stop-leak products. I actually like the factory ones. They work better than band clamps and look better too.
So if anybody has some nice ones lying about, I would really appreciate a good assortment of sizes!
Thanks and best regards,
Ross

Are you speaking of the RomaBlok clamps? They are hard to find. If so, Mt. Carmel Spares has a new run of many sizes from time to time. Some find old stashes and re-plate them using a Caswell plater. Good luck!

They're the Roma design. They have a machine screw which engages a barrel nut; one end of the band wraps around the nut. I like them because they overlap much more than the traditional ones commonly available here and give a better seal. Much more like aircraft types.
