this thing? I have 5 more elements to do, so any labor saving hints
would be appreciated. >>
I have a KLM KT-34A (not X) and it has this problem, I see this as a design defect.
My plan is to replace these "C" or "P" ? straps with stainless steel straps held to
the elements es gamma match with (all) stainless steel `avaition hose bands' screw
type radiator hose clamps/bands. I have not worked out the details, looks like it
will be super sized bands (1/2" X 3') that I have seen in auto parts stores etc.
cut into 2 or 3 pieces of suitable length with the ends bent around to allow the
`hose bands' to be at the correct angle (perpendicular to the tubing.
This bent ends, forming the leads is what I havn't worked out yet.
I have replaced the two very short jumpers with some clamped on rings that I
straightened out and used, but they were able to be bent in a different manner.
This matter must be properly addressed before I put this beast up on my future
