Humm, hadn't thought about just using a ferrule. If I had a torch I could solder it to the tubing. Dang, no torch though.

I'm probably overthinking this anyway. Not that much pressure on a heater hose, maybe 15 lbs. It will probably be fine without the bead. Just trying to purty up the top of the engine without those ugly rubber hoses in the way.

I would definately go with some kind of bead. May be overkill and probably is ,but coolant makes a mess apart from all risks on damage.

Here's another version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eempWS13uiE

Both are pretty much what I had in mind. If I can find something to make the rollers, I'm going to make one.

That's neat Dr C! Might just get one of those instead of trying to build something!
