I just went thru this with the Red Car PS on a BBC 1968.
I ordered replacement clamps from a vendor and finally got around to trying to use them they WERE undersize and would NOT slip onto the HOSE!
These Repops are made in Europe and go by mm sizing and I had to figure out art numbers and source for a sizing increase from 15mm to 17mm sizing to get them to fit.

I like the USA vintage clamps

Advertised as correct, then saw them at Autozone today. They’re going back with a few other things. Not. Even. Close.
The initial discussion is updated under the Originality section .Good stuff.
