Default Where to get these hose clamps?

They are ABA and AWAB.

I have done some Googling and turned up some bags of 50, but nothing that fit my needs. The sizes I am looking for are in the range of 22mm and 26mm. I am well fixed with fuel line size.

Any leads?

Go to any auto parts store and ask for fuel injection hose clamps. Specify fuel injection and the diameter you need (convert to standard if they don't have metric, as mentioned)

I've tried that. A NAPA came closest to actually having some. I was looking for some to replace the ones on the low pressure feed line, 19-22mm, which need to be destroyed on most every disconnect. Still the clamps they had amounted to lined worm screw clamps much too bulky to fit the application. And too expensive to "stock up."

bummer. A NAPA local to me had clamps nearly identical to the originals (like the pics in the first post), not worm screw clamps.

I got mine at O'Reilly Auto Parts. It was a package of assorted sizes, so I bought 2, which was enough for all of the hoses on my old 142.

The NAPA I was in (out of town) had a knowledgeable person who showed me to the bubble packs out on the sales floor. There was an assortment, but none of the fuel line clamps were any larger than about 5/8". Like the OP, I have plenty of those. Same with that link above. They stop just shy of what we need. He went into the back to get the fancy one. I just used one of those plastic locking clamps that come with the fuel pump kits.

Hose Clamp Kings is looking promising, and those linked are stainless even. Looks like packs of 10 only.

Fake edit: As Art has pointed out, they don't go as big as I want.

I tried my local stores, including NAPA, and they all just pulled out a big fat worm clamp. Not sure how far to the nearest O'Reilly.

Thanks for suggestions so far.

Yea, I see now they don't go big enough. Sorry about that, quick and dirty googling brought up a hose clamp supplier that I'd never heard of.

Listen, this whole system of yours could be on fire and I couldn't even turn on the kitchen tap without filling out a twenty-seven B stroke six... bloody paperwork. I'm surprised you haven't tried Central Services yet....

Art, when following your intank pump replacement writeup like a year ago, I decided to use these clamps instead of typical worm clamps or the ones OP is trying to find. I found them much easier to use because I could just slip 90 degree pliers in there and take it off. Is there any reason I shouldn't have used these? The hose did not seem to slip and all and I have no leaks. I used them on the feed and return, still no leaks.

Try cinch rings, best seal you will get with small diameter hose.
Used in most jet ski's these days. I used them on my catch can.

VW/Audi also used this type clamp in the 80's.

www.walmart.com lists a pack of 10 clamps 21-38 mm. Also lists 13-19 mm with 10 mm width. Also 8 mm width, 16-25 mm, package of 100 for $36.38 or 10 pieces for $9.63

No good reason I know of. Depending on where it is, for example on the tank sender outlet nipple, I have trouble grabbing all three tangs of the spring clamps even with bent pliers in tight spots. The clamps pictured below (from OP's OP) are the one's I want. Even from Volvo. But I've been unable to make certain of the p/n for that particular size. These are easy to tighten and loosen again until they rust, and the hose doesn't extrude through the worm gear slots.

And, it is what Volvo put on the hose. For me, this isn't an urgent mission, just thinking someone might have already solved this, but apparently not.

You can probably also go with a legitimate T clamp, but I suspect cost could be a factor.

Lots of options, even though the ranges are pretty small. I see a .98-1.06 in. diameter clamp (26mm), and a 7/8 in. (22mm). Would they be too wide, though?

A lot of nice clamps showing up.

This one from Alibaba. sizes from 10 to 180 mm. Minimum order 3000. Delivery capability one million/ month.




Who knew these would be so obscure? I am holding out for hiperfauto to step in here and tell me he has them in stock.
