Turbo-Hose Clamp

Although I cannot locate the thread, we too experienced a clamp failure while climbing a long winding 8% hill and luckily we were just approaching the top. I had the transmission in 3rd gear and was right at 2100 RPM’s when all the sudden a loud pop, sounding like a balloon bursted from the motor and immediate loss of power. We pulled off the roadway and I began inspecting the probable cause. I noticed one of the Orange rubber boots had blown off the intercooler by the radiator and the Heavy Duty clamp broken. Luckily we were only a few miles from a friend who owns a repair shop and he delivered several large hose clamps so I could reach our destination and replace with another Heavy Duty clamp in a couple days. So, I will continue to research threads in an attempt to locate the author who I know posted photo’s too of his replacement parts. I will also carry a spare boot and clamps as this seems to be a “when” not “if” situation. I would suggest checking all your hose clamps as I found a few others needed snugging in and around the motor. Although an easy fix, this could leave you stranded when all it takes is a hose clamp replacement.

Good heads up. On my 14 many of my hose clamps were loose when brand news. All of the clamps had the torque marks paint on the them, but I had leaking radiator hoses at the clamp. Spent an hour tightening all the the clamps where a few were not tight enough to hold. Glad you were able to get back on the road and a good share on the post.

I was the original author from last year. Mine broke while heading up hwy 62 out of El Paso. I had to get towed to an RV park in El Paso. Luckily there was a Frieghtliner shop open on a Saturday and they had the spring tension clamps in stock. Then on Monday I took it to Cummins so they could make sure I had it torqued correctly, as they are very easy to overtighten. At that time they suggested I replace the boot too. I noticed that the new one was significantly thicker and stiffer than the old one, so went ahead and did that too. Also replaced a couple more rusted clamps. Now I have a few emergency extras in my toolbox.
I wasn't able to find the pictures but I did show it on an episode of my YouTube channel. You can see it here at the 10:45 mark. https://youtu.be/e4qwzp-5ABY

Watched your video and it was the same exact location that failed as mine.

I did see a coach that had 2 clamps on each side of the boot. Might be a good idea to add more.
