    Suggestion: Spring clamps or worm clamps?

    When I purchased my Diamond DA20, the previous owner "mechanic" had used worm clamps on all the water hoses. Another pilot/mechanic told me that spring clamps are better because they expand and contract along with the corresponding heat. Then at Oshkosh this year, I got a good look at a new 912 engine and saw lots of spring clamps. However, when I swapped a few clamps out, I could not get them to stop leaking. What clamps are the right ones to use and where?

    Did you use new hose? I think if you put spring clamps on old hose they would leak as the hose would still have the imprint of the worm clamp. Rotax advises you to position the spring clamp back into its imprint if you need to remove/reinstall a hose.
    We have been very happy with the spring clamps.

    How about a video detailing the 200-hour (?) "inspection" of the carbs?

    A video on trouble shooting and inspection of vacuum hoses and other parts like carb flanges- I had a oily substance covering my intake tubes and no one could tell me what caused it - finally figured out it was a carb flange crack in the rubber and was invisible and only leaked under turbo pressure when running, and the oily covering was dried up residue from fuel leaking out of the socket

    Maybe a video on how to negotiate a better purchase price on a rotax 912 .
