Provided the copper elbow is only connected to hoses, what is the problem??? Galvanic corrosion shouldn't be much of an issue, unless this piece is normally submerged in the bilge—then it is a bit of a problem. If the part isn't submerged, isn't in contact with other metal, why bother? Diesel doesn't care that it is bronze or copper.

Any help would be most appreciated!

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.
