Same thing you did, really, Just used brass barbs. I wouldn't use the oediker clamps, though, as they're near impossible to remove non-destructively. . .

How do you fasten the hose to the fittings if not those clamps?

Good question. You can probably use EFI style hose clamps, the type that have some spring to them. But I wouldn't use the normal hose clamps like the cheap ones we put on heater hoses. They don't flex with the hose, and eventually loose a lot of their clamping pressure (which is why we have to keep going back to tighten them)

The Oedikers aren't the easiest to remove, but of all the hand-tool installed types they seem to seal best on a pressurized line. Anything better requires big tools to put on.

Well, maybe this is a better question: Why would you ever need to remove the clamps? If/when the hoses go brittle (in 20 years), wouldn't you just rebuild the hoses anyway? You'd have the same problem with those Trailhead SS ones (or stock), wouldnt you?

Jubilee clips. I needed to pull them when I had to retighten the fittings after a few miles. Or if you needed to pull the radiator.

Tell me where I'm naive....

Why don't we just buy a bunch of those Mocal sandwich plates and have someone make a bunch of flexible hoses for us (with the right fittings)? Forget the rigid lines and trying to reuse the stock stuff that we have?

One detail on Hans' design, do the end fittings have some sort of swivel on them so you can tighten the fittings on each end?

How would you spec the hoses? i.e. fittings, length, hose material
