How much did you end up using? I'm about to buy a 14oz container. I'm guessing that is plenty. Mine has been leaking for who knows how long, 3000 miles maybe. Just saw it this last inspection.

Query that might help us all:

Would it hurt anything if I replaced the crappy OEM ear-type clamping bands with a worm gear-type screw-tight clamp?

Thanks for the info. I just found out all four of mine are seaping. This seems easy enough to handle by myself.

or just use this

Time Pirate Clamp

If you want to go with a classic one, you'll have to look and be sure the clamp you need is the right size.

Oetiker Ear Clamps
