HOSE TO HOSE JOINT

The potential problems caused by any joint formed by clamping a larger sized hose on a smaller one are obvious, but it's particularly bad when done in the exhaust system. Not only does it create a potential source of CO leakage into the interior, but failure here also means the engine would be pumping water directly into the vessel.
