Replacement carb clamps

TOOLS1

The stock carb clamps SUCK!!!! So I went on a hunt, and found these 8mm cut to length clamps. http://www.ebay.com/itm/290771491916?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649


I started by cutting the banding to length with a pair of side cutters.


I then took my Dremal tool, and smoothed off the cut ends.


I then put a little bend on the end of the band, so it would go into the little doo-hicky thing, and catch on the tab.




Then I bent it back up to lock it in.


I now have a clamp that will tighten onto the rubber boots, and seal them.

I've seen those kits before and always wondered if they would hold,or just pop loose once you got them tight. Glad to hear they work good.
