I went the alternate route later in the thread and put a "t" like this (only plastic)
and used a 1/2" of rubber tube to attach it to the nipple in there, then I put my braid in a circle and secured it with zip ties...
(also I took the original nylon inner hose and drilled holes all around it, then boiled it for an hour tofree the burrs from drilling it, and ran it back inside the braid....that keeps the braid from collapsing, and allows the braid to fit nicely on the hooked barbs of the "T")

Revvy's one of the cool reverends. He has a Harley and a t-shirt that says on the back "If you can read this, the bitch was Raptured. - Madman
I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew
