Re: [Chrysler300] Radiator Hose Clamps


Used ones are not really a good idea. They can get weak and fail over time. I have most necessary sizes of new correct Corbin clamps and can probably send you the proper tight ones. You may need a couple of different sizes, so look at the "R" number stamped into each of the clamps - both the new ones and your old ones if you still have them, and let me know the locations also. The R numbers will directly correspond to the sizes and will tell us why they are not sealing.

To keep yourself from tossing your pliers at a wall in frustration, get yourself a Corbin clamp pliers like this one. They really make dealing with these clamps a simple matter.

Tried to replace the screw type clamps holding the upper and lower radiator hoses in my 64 Chrysler 300K (413 cu in, 4 brl, no a/c). The repro spring type clamps that I bought fit but weren't tight enough to stop antifreeze leakings when the engine was started.  Any one have or know where to get original spring type clamps for a 64 300K that hopefully would have a tighter fit. Used are fine as long as tight. Need 4 of them. Thanks for any help.
