need glue & cement expert

Due to some difficult plumbing placement, I need to glue or cement a PVC elbow to the hose barb of a Jabsco Y-valve. Jabsco says no way, the hose barb will crack if I use any type of glue or cement. He said it's glass filled propalene and nothing can be glued or cemented to it.
I can't give up that easily, there are no other remotely feasable ways to route the plumbing without creating a big mess of hoses, etc.
I expect they know their materials and I'm probably SOL but I'm not giving up without a fight...help!

You cannot glue glass filled Polypropylene, PERIOD.

If you can't make the mod, you might try one of the Y-valves with the rotating ports. I used one of these and it made things a lot easier:

Y-Valve

That is also the one I use and it's pretty slick! The hose barbs can rotate 360 if you need them to..

That is the Y-valve I have. Jabsco was kind enough to send me a third hose barb elbow but that isn't enough. I need to attach a 90d PVC street elbow to the end of the hose barb.
Somebody else makes a 90d elbow with 2 hose barbs. I can use a 3" piece of hose to attach the Y-valve hose barb to the PVC hose barb...but I don't have the room for that either. I'm in a VERY tight spot behind a cabinet.

The Trident 101 will not bend enough in this tight space.

Saildoggie, what about 3M 5200 adhesive caulk?

Xort,

Have you already mounted the y-valve to a bulkhead? If so, you might try dismounting it and getting all the hoses attached before remounting it, or even skip the mounting and let the y-valve "float". This might get you a bit more...

Hmmm
I wonder how a 1.5" 90d radiator hose would work as an elbow? Fit one end into the Y-valve hose barb and the other into a connector piece to then attach to the Trident 101.
All my original head hoses are fuel hose and they are relatively stinkless considering they are 27 years old!

Can I coat the short piece of radiator hose? I know it's recomended to wrap smelly hose with plastic wrap...
