Wanting to replace both heater hoses, one is simply 3/4" heater hose to radiator from firewall, other is this one pictured ?? . The one pictured on manifold side is attached to hard tubing fitting from manifold, crimped to it like a hydraulic or AC hose that was manufactured that way ?? I have never seen this, perhaps OEM ? I do not know where to purchase another like it ? Am I supposed to cut off hard tubing and clamp hose to it all hillbilly deluxe, or does this hard tubing part actually exist for purchase, or at least a new replacement hard tube fitting made to clamp normal heater hose to ??

Yes, cut the clamp off. Can use hacksaw or whizzer wheel. Just don't cut too deep. Use common worm drive clamp for install.
