  • Climatizer and Defroster Clamps

    Can someone tell me or show me the correct clamps to be used on a 1954 commander coupe climatizer and defroster hose. I have seen the standard wire squeeze type but in the service book the picture appears to be more of a flat type clamp. Thanks for your help

    Look at old junked dryers, at one time they used the type needed.

      My '53 has the wire type. My '51 has the flat type.
      Since modern hoses may have a new wall thickness the old style wire clamps may not provide a good seal. SDC show judges no longer deduct points for modern screw clamps.
