  • Can't find these anywhere!

    Hi, I've been look all over the internet and parts stores and I can't seem to find replacements for these brake/gas line clamp rubbers. Are there even reproductions of these things or will I just have to go and get some newer style tube clamps or something?

    Thanks, Tom.

    have you considered making? I need some new ones also but haven't spent any time until now to look. Since you can't find, I thought about making some. You can get rubber in strips from Grainger (3/4" thick, 2 in wide x 36"). I thought I would cut to size as required, clamp and drill holes through as required and then split. This will be something I'll be trying in the upcoming months. Let me know if you try and I'll let you know results when I get around to trying. Biggest issue right now is finding a Canadian supplier. d

      Hi Danielz, yes I have thought about making them before as they would seem very easy to as long as I have the materials, but that was the problem was finding the rubber. Ill take a look at that store and see if I can make some as well. Looks like a suitable way to replace these unless someone knows where to get some.

      Thanks, Tom.

        Cut to fit, THEN split, then clamp and drill the holes. Unless you can cut the rubber with a sharp knife, you may loose some material and end up with a poor fit when clamped around the lines if you do it after drilling the holes.

          Rubberline Products carries all thicknesses of rubber. Their main branch is in Brantford.
