Been thinking again

Should I use wire hose clamps or the new improved stainless screw kind. Wonder what Mr. Donald would have done?

I'd use whichever ones work best. If you're not going to be concourse judged there is no need for picky originality.

Ha, I am so far from concourse it ain't even funny. But unless you know it is hard to find.

Ahhh, SS screw type. Right. Mr. Donald would have used them if he could have afforded it.

Donald was a racer. He'd use the best that he could get his hands on. McMaster Carr has them for a good price.

Hi Jack, one note of caution on the hose clamps. Do a bit of searching and see if you can find the solid SS type. the run of the mill steel type hose clamps with those little slotted screw threads in them chew into the rubber.--Fwiw---Keoke

I agree with Keoke, Jack, although Randy Gay has a point!!
