I did some Googling to find out where you might have seen that, but have been unable to turn up anything.

Can you tell me where Edd China says he prefers that style of hose clamp?

I like fuel injection hose clamps. I used them to replace a PS return hose recently. Much better than a worm clamp imo.

While I do like the idea of the OEM-style spring hose clamps, I wasn't sold on the idea of continued use of my 20 year old factory installed ones when I replaced my radiator and hoses. Without any luck in finding direct replacements I went with Constant Tension Worm Gear Hose Clamps.

Pretty much like a larger version of fuel injection hose clamps with the smooth full metal band, but with a Belleville spring under the bolt head to maintain consistent tension no matter the temperature. Install them like a regular hose clamp plus the additional step for tightening to the torque spec to set the Belleville spring.

You can get them at NAPA. Usually sold under marine or big rig lines, but you can almost always find the right size for auto radiator hoses.

That being said, I've never had a problem with old spring clamps, on more cars than I can count, unless they got bent/mangled trying to remove them.

Any Chrysler dealer can get spring clamps...they were OE for most of sixty years.

My friend's 1972 Satellite and his brother's 1976 Duster retain most of their OE spring clamps.

Too bad they don't have a rolled edge like FI types.

I generally just reuse the spring clamps. Doing so has NEVER resulted in a leak.

Goss is right in this case. There are some functional benefits of the spring type vs. the worm-drive type.

That's why I don't replace my OE spring clamps with worm drive clamps when I'm working on our cars.

They're a PITA to use without the proper tool. With the right tool, they're much easier/faster to use than worm drive clamps. Learned that one the hard way.
