deaner - I was thinking I would make my own brackets from flat bar and put a slot in them so the hardline could pass out of them without disconnecting the hose. Is that what you mean? Are there premade, off-the-shelf brackets available someplace?

dean - I don't have good visibility on the interior because the ID of the housing end is smaller than the ID of the tubing (i.e there is a step) and I would have to be looking at it from the inside of the tube - I guess I just need to grab a mirror and take a look. I did bevel the housing down to about 1/16th thickness for the initial welds, so I'm not terribly concerned about full penetration at the root of the weld.

Yep, that's what I meant. Wish I had used the ones with the slot. Got a bit of a problem now. I think I'll carefully cut a slot. Kartek sells them: part no. SUS04114B 4.59 for two. Others have them without the slot for a dollar a piece.
