what ive done is use the angle adapters on barb fittings to gently move the hose to keep it in a smoother linear line.
7/16" hose on 1/2" barb fitting makes a tight seal (generally clamp-less, but for 1st time, a clamp would be a keen
idea). on compression fittings use the hose size to select fitting as this is the seal area.
generally, a 1/2" hose, fitting and bung offer the best flow, faster circulation, and best practice for the cooling
aspect. the smaller hose would be for smaller cases, short span lengths and lower temperature controls. mixing
different sizes can be done with only knowledge that the size is warranted to be smaller.
hope this doesn't muddy the water.
