Did much the same on a transmission oil cooling line many years ago on a Ford E350 van using a leather keycase and some speaker wire. That repair lasted over 3,000 miles, mainly because my father forgot I had done the repair and didn't replace the transmission cooling line until he saw it on the next oil change.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
