    3/4mm hose clips...

    Has anyone got any links to some on ebay? What do people use?

    I am trying to eradicate any potential boost leaks, so I want some 3/4mm hose clips...

    You'll struggle to get them that small. Blob a bit of superglue on the hose and use a small cable tie if you're worried about these joints.

    the problem is they aint actually 3-4mm thats why

    obviously gotta take into account the walls of the tubing as its the internal diameter that is 3 or 4mm

    the total size will be more like 8-10mm

    thats why youll be having problems looking


    I had a shed load - got a few lying about maybe but thats all

    places like BnQ will sell them for garden hoses and them sort of attachments. think 6mm is smallest they go to mate. got a few on my hoses going to my header tank.

    If it's for the vacuum pipes then metal hose clips are total overkill, as has been said... a small cable tie is more than sufficient and being lighter, they won't effect your power to weight ratio either.

    Honest...

    Cheers.
