Ended up going to NAPA and buying a piece of 9.8 mm (don't remember the inch size) fuel line or transmission cooler hose. About $4.00 including 2 clamps. A real PIA to install. We even thought about removing the intake manifold, but were able to attach the new piece with long nedle nose plyers and a little donation of blood.

I'd like to add that we used the wide stainless steel hose clamps with
rolled teeth which I buy in bulk from McMaster in assorted overlapping
sizes. I strongly recommend not to use cheap wimpy perforated clamps
that can rust, cut into the hose and burst open any moment.
