I've used this method often on Japanese cars with great success and great savings.
Good idea Mac. Method fits well with your forum name. Now, what can you do with a matchbook and a paper clip?

Hummmmm, this could explain why the hose I need doesn't seem to exist. Maybe finding the longer metal pipe is the answer....?

ha ha ha I hear that a lot. Funny that you mention the matchbook and paperclip. I was once asked to take some matches, a stick of gum and a bottle cap to make something so I broke off the match heads, put them in the cap with the aluminum wrapper from the gum (I chewed the gum) and lit the match heads to make aluminum oxide which is used in deodorants. Stupid bar tricks. LOL

MBZ part# A 111 831 00 94 for about $25.00 at the dealership. It has different dimensions on each end and must be cut to length. I think it's just what you're looking for

The other short-angled by-pass hose (from the pump to the head) is 127 203 0082 (from uroparts.com), the other number on the package is 117 33388 738 but I don't know what it references to.

Based on one of the response pics posted, I pulled the rigid heater return tube and had 6" welded to it so I can just use the short hose as in my original post pic. Threw some black paint on it, installed it and no more leak, finally!
Thank you to all who responded and Happy Motoring to you all
