I'm sure someone has posted something about this in the past but I can't find it so I'll run it by again.
I replaced the the inline fuel filter that is located under the foot board and noticed that one of the squeeze type hose clamps was leaking fuel. I tried to find new ones but no one including the John Deer dealer had any, although I did find some that were close to the size I needed at Lowe's. Anyway, does anyone know of a reason why you shouldn't use the screw on worm drive type clamps? I understand you should't over tighten the clamp since the filter is plastic but with a little common sense they should work, Right? If anyone knows of any unforeseen problems using these types of hose clamps please let me know.
