My opinion


Where exactly is the leak? If it is leaking where the black hose first feeds into that fitting then the fitting will need to be replaced. If it is leaking at the seam on the fitting (like it is cracked) then you may be able to fix that pretty easy.

If it is a crack in the fitting then I would take that hose to an air conditioning shop and have them fix it. They can pressure test the hose, determine where the leak is and then braze (not sure on spelling) the area to fix the leak.

Otherwise, I would go the A/N fitting route. I have used Pegasus racing and they have the Metric - A/N adapters that you may need to connect the lines but their A/N fittings are not "true A/N" fittings... they connect to the hose differently and seem to be lacking some quality. I still used them and have been happy but when I went to a race shop locally and purchased true A/N fittings I could tell the difference in a second. Here are a couple shots of what I have.

I know this is different than what you have but it may give you some ideas. I used A/N-16 lines and fittings. The curved one is a 150 degree adapter and you can see the blue metric/a-n adapters as well. The two fittings (45 angle) that feed into the oil cooler are true A/N fittings... I had to buy the angled ones to clear my fog light on the passenger side.

Best of Luck,
