Cummins 330 hp Air Filter Assembly

I can not seem to keep my air filter assembly clamped on to the turbo intake. Even as I am tightening the bolt clamp the connector sleeve seems to be "Walking" it's self off.
Then after a few hours of running the boat the air filter assembly is hanging loose again.
Anyone else experience this problem.

Do you have a Walker AirSep? We do on our 6bta and I have experienced the same. Our "solution" was to use the Walker sealing compound between the filter and the sleeve, two T type hose clamps and not to over tighten. If you over tighten you can collapse a section of the sleeve (I did). Still, you have to be careful not to hit the filter arrangement as you move around it. As I recall, that sleeve is slightly tapered, which may aid in getting the assembly onto the sleeve but makes it so it has a tendency to work itself off.

Thanks for the info. It looks like a Walker unit.
I will call them as well and confirm the fix.
Appreciate your help.
It has been driving me nuts.
