Is there an appropriate adhesive that will stick rubber to itself and to PVC?
Working on this some more. Thinking adhesive-lined heat shrink is probably my best bet for building up the diameter. Tried two layers of some thick heat shrink I had around and it brought the diameter of the hose right up to where the OE rubber locating bushings want it to be (matching OE rubber hose).

Read a little on bonding to polyolefin, and it's apparently difficult due to the non-porous, chemically inert nature of the stuff. I'm going to buy the size of heat shrink I need at the local Fastenal.

Is there a Loctite product I should have them order in to glue the rubber to it?

Doing more googling:

This looks like just the stuff, but I can't get any out of Fastenal for less than $196.
