Default Tranny line woes... again...

Ok, well as some of you remember, I installed new tranny lines back in November to prevent a fire from the old, leaky lines. Well here'* the problem - When I installed the one line, I had to couple it together to one of the previous rubber lines, so I used a piece of old pipe that was already on there as a "redneck hose barb/coupler". One end is flared and clamped with a good fuel injection clamp, and the other side of the pipe is NOT flared, and clamped with the same thing, but I am getting leaks there, since the hose is sliding off on that side. I am looking for a hose coupler that is flared on both sides that I can use, but I am having a hard time finding one. The only thing I can find is those hose barbs like these -




Are these ok to use? To me it would seem that it would leak. TIA!

Iv used those before. they DO not leak if you clamp them good.

iv also used the plastic ones for Water cooling PCs and they dont leak with no clamps or very little clamping. so im sure with metal ones and good clamp on there it should be find.

Used these clamps they are suppose to have more clamping force.

A barb fitting will do just fine, but I suggest getting it long enough to double clamp.

NEVER use a fitting that is not flared, bumped, or barbed.
