Well, I measured the snorkel last night and it is approximately 32 inches around. Tridon/Ideal makes a clamp that is a 1/2 inch wide and should work, see part 67004-0538 (note: available at Fastenal). Alternatively, it appears the part is still available through Lotus with a market price of around $18.00.

You can also use 2 or 3 shorter ones connected together.

I thought about that as a practical solution, but I wanted something a little more OEM looking. I also figured I could pretty easily make my own clamp using parts ordered from a supplier like McMaster & Carr. As it turns out, the Lotus OEM part is a clamped band requiring a special clamping tool and not a worm gear type band. I ordered the Tridon/Ideal clamp noted previously.
