Need clamp for fuel line from tank to pump on 81 TR7 FI
« on: March 19, 2016, 01:46:10 AM »
M7 81 FI TR7 developed a slow fuel leak (one drop every few minutes when

parked) and it turned out that the hose from the

tank to the fuel pump was shot (I hear modern fuel attack our old components).

The connection to the fuel tank is in a recessed area such

that a standard screw-type hose clamp doesn't fit.   The old hose was clamped

with

a "snap-grip" clamp (see

http://www.mcmaster.com/#standard-hose-clamps/=11logbh) and I was able to

reuse it on the new hose, but

only 2 teeth are engaged because the new hose has a large outside diameter.  I

need to better solution for the long-term.



I looked at the Rimmers and Victoria British webpages, but didn't see any

clamps offered for this application.



It seems like others must have encountered this problem, so I'd like to hear

from someone with a workable solution.



Thanks in advance,
