Funny, just made this comment on another post
For that specific installation I imagine the adel clamp loaded along the engine mount tubing as very prone to slipping. I would try something to fix it in place IRT to tension. It's tricky but I found a way to get those hangar attach points onto the engine for all of the good reasons to do that. Otherwise I think what you have it will work. If you can, maximize rubber length and minimize steel tube length?
It's been mentioned before, but a rehash is always good:
The tubing that forms the hanging support for the ends of the exhaust tubes is prone to slipping (hose slipping on small steel tube).
In my mind a rolled bead at each end of each tube would be the perfect solution so that the hose clamp could be mounted just above the roll and lock everything in place.
I didn't have that tool and used a very slight flare instead, works great. Others have had success with knurling or just roughing up the surface with a stone to give it some tooth.
It's probably going to get oily eventually so consider that now.
