Hello 2onoist's

Wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions on Radiator hose Clamps for the Tuono other than the one time use ones. Preferably want to find and use smooth bore hose clamps, not the worm type. Any suggestions as to what manufactur sells these and where to find them would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!

Hi RacerX

I did look at those at AF1, just trying to find a clamp with a clean look compared to the worm gear type! Thanks for the suggestion!

ours have smooth insides, and are good for our hoses, they are thin band.....only other choice that I know about is the OEM clik-clamp style by Oetiker

Hello Ed!!

Thanks for the info, wasn't sure if they were smooth bore! Said they were worm gear type. Is it the Samco Heavy Duty Coolant Hose Clamps (PU1902-0377) If so I'll be sure to order online. Again thanks for the help Ed!!

I was going to size each hose and put on proper size T-bolt clamps in hopes it looks 1000 times better than worm gear ones.... dk how that will go.
