With thicker tape 2 or 3, with the real thin .99 cent kind I'd do one or two more so 4 or 5 with it...If you have trouble getting them in just back it out and take one layer off at a time till it will seat...Just do about the top 2/3's of your barbs, keep going on up and over the o-ring to, really snug it down tight on the o-ring, that will help to keep it from deforming as badly and hopefully you can snug it down a little tighter..
If all else fails use some of that Permatex on the barbs instead of rings, the only bad thing is you would have to let it cure out a couple of days before you use it..Sung them on down well, don't turn your barb any further in or out once its cured or you will break the bond..I clean them off with a little alcohol first also, in gets any finger grease off of them...
