Sorry about your bad experience with coolant leaking even after it repaired.
I assume the repair man didn’t pressurize check the cooling system? ? ? ? ?
I try to recheck my repair work and pressurized with Stant tester to about 20 lbs to see if it not seeping or more leaks elsewhere.
About clamp too tight to cause it to pinch…..I think it mean that it cause rubber to roll over rubber under clamp’s band. Am I right or wrong? If so, leak tester would show it.
Hope your arms and hands are Ok.
Sojourn for Christ, Jerry
No it actually cut into the rubber and sliced the hose around the band of the clamp. And yes I have to agree that pressure testing is a preferred method of insuring that the job is done correctly, however this repair was done at night in a hotel parking lot not in a fully equipped garage. Also I'm sure there is probably an adapter to adapt up to the extra large radiator cap size of my Setra(s), but to this day I haven't had or seen one! On that note I'm certainly glad that you mentioned it, as I am going to check into and get me some kind of adapter for my Setra(s) for my pressure tester. Thanks for the idea, it is something I have really overlooked. Even though I had realized it's size before, I just never took the time to be sure and be able to adapt.
PS yes thank you my hands and arms are fine, the only remaining evidence is multiple tiny scratches. Looks as though I was involved in a "cat fight" & Holly and I haven't even had an argument or disagreement yet! (plus she wasn't there LOL!)
