Phil's solution may have had a lengthy road test by now ;-)

I just had the same problem on my '86 (at 168k), how have the
"two narrow hose clamps" held up longer term?  Anyone have a more
recent address for Phil?

had same problem.  Solution: remove what was left of the rusted crimp end
and replace with two narrow hose clamps.....no leaks for 1 year now!
