Finally bought a heat gun and completed this repair. On the broken line, it took 7 attempts to figure out a system and muster the confidence to proceed onto the new line.

For you future readers, the trick is laying the heat gun on a table while rotating the fitting in front of it. Every few seconds give it a pinch (leather gloves) and feel how pliable it's becoming. If you go too far, the line collapses while inserting the barb end.
