Re: please help, intake blew clamp
Perhaps the clamp gears were stripped? Hard to say without a pic of the broken clamp. Two clamps are recommended for this reason. Sorry for the trouble.
There is a tool set out there that allow one to make any size emergency clamp by wrapping wire around the hose, hooking and then twisting the wire. I've seen it demonstrated to secure a split wooden mast, its supposed to be very strong. Has to be cut off, however. I just can't find the thing at the moment. I suppose, if I was going to be out of reach of civilization, I would want the thing aboard.
