Yanmar3GM30f-saltwater hose leaking

1125 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Rockter
I recently replaced the saltwater hose connecting the rawwater pump with the heatechanger.

Now there is a slight leak of saltwater from the connection between hose and the heat exchanger.

I have tightened the hose clamp as much as I dared to.

Any tips or tricks on how to fix this is welcome

Replaced with an OEM (pre bent) raw water hose?
Leaking from the hose connection..not the gasket between the front heat exchanger cover and the heat exchanger body?
Over tightening the fitting can be a cause as it may tend to distort the hose. Are you using the OEM fittings?
