May or may not be applicable, but dive gear that comes in to my local dive shop for service that has this stuff on the reg hoses quite often shows high wear (abrasion) where the edge of the spiral wrap sits. In extreme cases, it has worn the rubber coating through to the fabric reinforcement.

Granted, reg hoses will move a lot more than the rigging of an engine, and will probably be exposed to higher levels of sand and such, but it may still be worth keeping an eye on. Not hard to do: pick a spot and slide the wrap sideways a bit and look for abrasion marks.

Good spiral wrap supplier

I recently needed some wrap too, found a good supplier on Ebay, seller is -autojungle - http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/autojungle/
They do 3 sizes, 5 -50mm at 3.55 for 10 metres, 15-80mm at 5.55 for 10 metres and 25-130mm at 10.95 again for 10 metres, very reasonable postage too. I got some of each, paid on Monday, it arrived Tuesday morning, well pleased!
