The shop had 1/2" and 5/8" fittings for crimping hydraulic lines to steel tubing, but neither would work for 15mm (one too small and one too big). They have really sturdy sst hose clamps (360 deg clamps like the orig merc clamps on the vac lines and such - I'll post pics tomorrow) that should do fine on the barbed ends.

This way also leaves me free to take it apart to add another cooler inline if I want or to easily blow out all the oil.
