  • Samco's loosening up...

    Anybody else with the same problem as I have? I installed the Samco's and upon discovering a small amount of coolant on the garage floor, decided to check the hose clamps.

    Turns out I had to tighten each and everyone of them a couple of turns. I used the original BMW clamps..

    Will they 'settle' or do I need to check them every now and then?

    Thanks,

    Adwo

    I'd assume the material took a state of compression and they just need a "re-torque".

        I read somewhere that the samco/silicone hoses need a high quality clamp that you actually torque to a specific value depending on the diameter of the application.
        Of they might be trying to intimidate the potential custmer into buying the more expensive clamps with the hose kit.
