Correct hose clamp(s) was created by wcoye
Hi! Recently had a manifold repaired. When it was re-installed the guys used a worm drive clamp to cinch-up the asbestos sock on the exhaust line immediately after the manifold. That can't be correct, but what is. Is there a list I've missed for the proper clamps for the rest of what is under the hood? I thought I'd spend rainy summer days sprucing up the engine bay. Correcting the clamps seems to be a worthy project.

Bill, Originally the exhaust pipes had a asbestos pipe type insulation on them. They were held in place by a strap that folded on itself. I'll try and get a photo tomorrow for you.

Jim, Thanks! I there a listing of what clamp is proper in other parts of the engine? I seem to have a bit of a collection under my hood.

Jim is correct. The exhaust was wrapped on Asbestos and had a canvas cover applied over that. The hasteners were simalar to the design of the under hood wire fasteners along the radiator supports that held the horns.Stan sells them.

Bill,
Here are a couple of photos. The exhaust insulation clamp, some original insulation and clamps and the type of hose clamps for the water tubes. The asbestos insulation was pre-molded and came in two halves that slipped on the internal exhaust pipes and were held on with three clamps. I have never seen a canvas covering on the original asbestos.
