Alt. Clamp for AC Hoses?
« on: June 08, 2019, 09:18:54 PM »
1986 chevrolet C10 350

My AC hoses are resting on top of the alternator bracket.  They are rubbing and I am worried they will puncture over time.  I cannot find a bracket that is suppose to attach to the ALt bracket.  What do you guys do about this?

could take another hose (heater or so) and cut it in half and slip it over the ac hose then zip-tie it so it doesnt move

True, I have been using a old wash cloth to put between the hoses and bracket...I was looking for a more eye friendly answer.

This clamp is for heater hoses but might work for A/C hoses as well.  Otherwise, pick up an Adele clamp the right size.

In other words... if people learn by making mistakes, by now I should know just about everything!!!

I ended up using old rubber hose and put it on top of the bracket and resting the other hoses on it.
