You mean the barbs are so close that they are touching? Then you will need some 45-degree adapters, just as stoanee said.

What block are you using? I've had some close situations on blocks like the Fuzion, but nothing I couldn't squeeze clamps onto.

Hmmm....I'm trying to remember whether I used a 45 angle fitting on that or not, actually, I think I did on 1/2ID 3/4OD tubing but not on 3/8...yup, a 45 fitting is needed for 1/2"

WOW, even with a 3/8ths piece and not the best parts my load temps are down 20C and my idle 10c! Dng I love Wcing, now I just gotta let it bleed for the next day or so since there is a fair bit of bubbles left that wont come out cause the bubble all "stick" together and are really small
