Exactly

Your IQ is a magnitude higher than mine - I wish I'd thought of that !!

A great suggestion - I was worried that the rubber may decay over time and lead to the stresses suggested by Luddite, but I think the combination of your suggestion and PaulyG's should do the trick

Thank you all for your collective wisdom !

I think I rigged it as per PaulyG - going to bleed the brakes tomorrow - hopefully, the thing will be resilient. At least my pipe flaring is becoming very solid.

Picture of how it looks

As always, thank you to all , I would have given up on this a long time ago without your help
