    I am trying to recall where I saw some beefed up water tube clamps recently. Cannot seem to find on any of the vendors' websites. Any ideas?
    Thanks:helpsmilie::stupid:

    Thanks. I saw them on the daughter father build. I may have to look up Mr. Tabor.

    Once you get this all figured out, please share (here) whatever direction you went, and also how well it is working for you.

    re-doing my cooling system right now. What's wrong with the stock ones? Are they prone to break or just don't clamp onto the pipes well enough?

    I will re use the old ones if there is not a more heavy duty option. I had a leak and those things looked kinda scrawny to me, that's all.

    They are kinda scrawny but do work.nothing wrong with them. They've been working for 45 years. And will last
    Some people just want stronger LOOKING. Things. O well. Go with what you want. It don't take much to hold them in. And YES when I replace O-rings I DO use silicone on them. Extra added protection.

    Those clamps just hold the tube in the hole. The seal happens at the O-ring. Clean the hole and the tube really well and with slight lubrication at install there should be no leaks. Personally, and I will probably get lambasted for this, but I put a VERY light coating of silicon sealer on mine. Again emphasizing VERY light.

    Used these on the 69, as noted above, and was so impressed I recently ordered two other sets for my other Scouts. The stamped steel OEM clamps are adequate however after being removed and reinstalled several times they can become distorted. In my area with numerous summer days above 100+ degrees I just felt it wasn’t worth the chance to reuse them. The beefed-up clamps do not spread, bend or distort like the OEM ones and can be removed and replaced without worry of deforming. The service manual calls for coating the seal with hydraulic brake fluid I believe to swell the seal. The site is down but Mr. Tabor can be reached at the email stated in the link scout2000 (Thanks Jerry!) posted above.

    Ready to be corrected here, but wasn't the use of brake fluid to cause the rubber to swell slightly? I get that, but aren't the newer seals made of a synthetic material that has rendered that step obsolete?

    I called the phone number on the link and talked to John. He operates a bit like we did before amazon/internet took over the world. It was actually pleasant to do it the old way. I ordered and paid for my clamps and they are in the mail. --'Murica!:4x4:

    He's around. Working on these clamps as we speak. I was just chatting with him yesterday about this and other subjects.

    Also ask him about the new Scout II radiator support he just developed.

    Just out of curiosity, why is Tabor banned from Binderplanet?
