But the bend radius doesn't help the fact that they're too small. What do
you suggest to make them fit? I tried to do it with these years ago and
wound up wasting alot of money trying to figure out a way to split them and
clamp them. I could never get it to work. Lots of garbage.

I used some flexible metal exhaust tubing I think 3.5" (I dont remember -
bigger than the connection)  and cut it down the middle w/tinsnips, and
hoseclamped it in on itself until it became the correct diameter to fit.
Works great. Wear gloves or butcher your hands.
