Help with on3 vbands/ clamps?
Ok so here I am trying to get rid of on3 turbo kit leaks of course.....
kit is leaking like crazy, was leaking from all 3 v band connections.
I took all 3 off, put a good bead of rtv on em, let em sit, cure, w/e, tightened down the clamps in stages, finally started it up and it was pretty solid, no leaks or very minimal leaking.
I took it out, car felt better than it had ever felt and by the time I got home it was leaking like crazy again.
My v band clamps are bottoming out before they seem to actually pull the things in tight.
So my question is when everyone says replace v bands, are they saying replace the whole v band assembly, as in weld new connections on or would I be ok with just buying better v band clamps?
