I broke down the transaxle from my 12 G a couple of years ago, and put it all in a box. I'm finally getting it put back together, and found a couple of "clips" (?) in the box, and for the life of me, I can't remember where they came from. Can someone help jog my memory?

Looks to be a broken hose clamp, of the type used on '60-70's car radiator hoses.

Seems to be a lot of discussion about hoses here and there and everywhere . I will go with the consensus on this .

not sure on the hose clamp. Something in the back of my head says spring... With its condition, I am wondering if its a spring for the return on the brake band or something.

if it is a hose clamp, what would the id be?

Of course..................the hose clamp off of the vent hose, that's why it's in the transaxle box............................Thanks all! 

 

I'm sure I'll be asking more questions, especially when I start putting the drive together....................I lost all of my pictures I took during disassembly to a computer crash..........

 

Thanks again!

Yes, for sure that is the hose clamp for the vent/fill hose that sticks up under the seat.

I was working on one last week, and found 1 half on the hose and the other in my

hand.

One other issue here while I'm thinking of it.  My vent hose for the transaxle had a yellow plug in it, I have also seen pics of others that were plugged so, I'm assuming that is normal (factory).    Now, the question is, if it's a vent, why is it plugged?

That's also where you fill with oil.To keep water out.I think it's more of a fill hose rather than a vent.
