Thanks a lot for all your inputs. I tried tightening the clamps but still smelled a bit a fuel in the cockpit.
So I ordered two new clamps and a new rubber sleeve from Van's. I also spoke with Lockwood and they are filled up until Christmas.
Thus, I'll have a local A&P doing the work of replacing the sleeve and clamps. Lockwood told me that no lube is needed for the mating parts, however some people here suggested to use EZ turn.
What are your thoughts on using EZ turn vs. not using it?
