Field reports indicate that finger band clamp tips and fingers have a tendency to bend.
This creates a loose fitting between the elbow and hose and allows dirt and dust to
enter the engine. Late model replacement clamps are available that have been proven
to provide a better seal between the elbow and hose.
Two type of quick release clamps are being used.
(1) V-band clamps can be used at either end of the outlet.
(2) Quick-release V-band clamp can only be used with the improved hose at the air
cleaner outlet elbow.
