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!

xort----- i suppose you don't have enough room to put a short piece of hose on the barb & a barb on the pvc elbow?

That's your only bet^^
You cannot glue glass filled Polypropylene, PERIOD.

The glue containers of made of this stuff, it will NOT glue!!

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...
