    Restoration Supply (should be in vendors file) has both the old banded type and the ‘wire’ type. The wire type is the most accurate, but I believe that both are seen so often that you could get by with either. Maybe a ‘judge’ will respond.

    The wire type is shown in the parts book and factory photos…

    You can get double-wire clamps from McVey’s in Kansas, 913-722-0707.

    Another vendor is Kenneth Johnson of Carmel, IN, who sells on eBay under the username kjcarmel. He has them polished and lacquered. He has the sizes — just tell him the ID of your hose.

    It seems to me that the stick hose available in the last few years has a smaller outside diameter (OD) than the stick hose of a few years ago. Suggest you also measure the **OD** of your hose stock and provide that as well.

    However, I’ve found that lacquering does not hold up well, and they get pretty funky within a year. I’ve had better luck with polishing regular galvanized 2-wire clamps on a buffer, then spraying them with clear ENAMEL out of a rattle-can from the hardware store.
