While my Guitar Gently Weeps
I thought replacing all my hoses with silicone would be the best course after about 10 years time with the OEM hoses. First year was fine, but they're leaking now. I replaced all the clamps when I changed over and all needed to be tightened when I noticed the leak last year. Over the the winter, I had more weeping and could tighten the clamps even more. Seems like they compress more than rubber hoses. Should I have put some soft gasket cement or some other sealant on each joint? That will probably fix it, but a lot of wire brushing and other clean up the next time I'd be into the cooling system.
