I’ve been trying to fit a 4 inch straight rubber connector to inlet on my mates Cetus but as soon as I get what I think is tight it starts sliding down inlet piece this seems to be tapered so as soon as I get clip screwed down and I pull on it to see if it’s stable it just slides off is this inlet actually 3 inch as the 4 inch straight just keeps sliding off I was going to try a 3 to 4 inch adaptor see if I can get it like that he’s bought it second hand

Its made for a 4inch boot Dave but the reality is its a bad moulding.The boots are prone to blowing off as the stalk on the Cetus is too stubby and tapered .You cant get a decent hold on it.Some people put self tapping screws through the boot into the Cetus to stop it blowing off. Try a 4 to 3 reducer..When you look at a cetus its a ridiculous design.

If ime not sure with fitting boots I saw a few marks just about where the hose clip will be clamped so the boot will be pushed into the groove, I have found this prevents slipping. Worked for me.
