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.
