How do you get the tubing onto the intake side of a 1977 bonneville heater core? Its like 3/4" and my tubing is 1/2" id. How do you get it on there? I don't want to get barbs put on if I don't have to.

Thanks

Cut it down so that the OD is 5/8", like the other barb...
That is what I did with mine.
Stretch the 1/2" tubing over the 5/8" barbs, you will need to soak the tubing in hot water to get it stretchy enough.

Thanks for the help. I ended up just puting the end of the tube in boiling water for like 5 minutes. and then it just went right on, No cutting or anything. Good stuff.

You can also use a hair dryer to heat up tubing, so it will strech easer. After cutting.
