silicone hose repair

Following on from my vacuum hose split and MCSF, I thought I should post the details on how I repaired rather than replace it. I was recommended a product by another Alfa owner. I used a self amalgamating silicone tape called Kraken, it works in a temparature range of -65 c to 260 c and pressure of up to 700 psi and has a dielectric strength up to 7000 v. I wrapped the tape around the damaged area and the tape fuses together sealing the hole - simple as that. Might save a few people time and money.
