Where to pick up new hose and clamps for carbs.

So I am looking for new hose and clamps for my carb. The old ones are in poor shape and come to find out I am missing a couple clamps. I think that I just want to replace them all. I when to the local auto store and the fuel line they had to offer was really thick and hard to put on. Plus I hate the factory clamps. Any recommendations on where to pick up some good hose and clamps that will work well in close quarters? Thanks.

most parts stores carry hoses i'd check the local store... bring in the hoses and tell them the hoses are for fuel...

SeeBeare is right, that you can get both fuel and vacuum lines at an auto parts store. I don't like the OEM clamps, either, and have been using smaller hose clamps on...well, just about everything! Home Despot or Lowe's ought to have everything you need along those lines.

You can also try Harbor Freight if there's one nearby.
