Default Clamp size for radiator hoses

Preparing to do a radiator and hose replacement on a Miata located some distance away, and I don't have a car at hand to measure. Anybody know the nominal diameter for a radiator hose clamp on the NB so I can pre-purchase in case they're needed?

Don't have my car handy to measure, but in my 'useful miata facts' notebook I jotted down "The larger hoses are around 40mm OD and the heater hoses about 25mm". Hope someone else can verify.

Will measure my car tomorrow.

SAE size 24 (1.25" to 2") worked great on the radiator for me.
