heater hose clamp

Post by Phillmore » Sat Sep 08, 2018 9:36 am

Wanted for 1956 strict Conquest - the aluminium bracket/clamp that clamps the two metal heater hoses together in front of the heater box. Does anyone have a spare one or know of a source for them please?

Andy,
David Beales used to sell these clamps, I remember seeing them on his stand at Beaulieu in 2016. I thought that I had found a source for the missing clamp on my DB18 SS, but the heater pipes are a different size to those on the Conquest. The DB18 has the same clamp at both ends of the heater pipes, so I commissioned the local machine shop to make a copy of the one clamp that I had.

Thanks Chris, I assume that they regularly broke because of the three Conquests I have only one has the 'remains' of a clamp!

If all else fails, make your own !

I think I have at least one suitable in the garage, but also some aluminium blocks. Let me know if that would help.

I admire those who have the skills and equipment to fabricate parts from solid blocks of metal . . . . . sadly I'm not one of them. I'm happy with spannering, dismantling, tuning and fixing but I always thought that fabrication needs more sophisticated equipment as well as some expertise.

If you have any spare ones I don't think I'm that far from you? Certainly within Daimler range :D

Do you think you have a clamp or three lying around?

I've found 1 new one, which is not same size as the special Sports, so probably good for you. Send me the od of your pipe to confirm.

I'm sure there is a second hand one as well, but need more time to find it.

Diameter of pipe seems to be half an inch and distance between centres of clamp (between holes) around an inch.
