So what you are saying is that the hose connection is 90* instead of straight and that it just disconnected from the housing. I have outlined what I believe you are speaking about.

Kenny's Idea sounds good to me and you don't have to go and spend a lot of money for a quick fix.

If you decide to go that way and you have not already gotten a price from Greenfarmparts.com I would highly recommend that you do so. They already have a discounted price and then you can get an extra 5%. Jeff is the guy to deal with.

Here is how I would do it:
1) disassemble, then clean with acetone.
2) lightly rough up the hole (female side) with sandpaper or Emory cloth around the hole- NOT up and down in the hole.
3) if the male part fits snugly in the the hole, then just do the sandpaper or Emory cloth deal again around the part.
If it fits loosely, then here is a trick I learned: Lay the part on a hard surface like a steel workbench, then place a semi-rough file on top of it, apply pressure and "roll" it, this will create a sort of knurling on the part and actually raise material to get you a tighter fit by a few thou.
4) if you are ready to assemble, clean once more with acetone-don't touch the parts with bare hands after that. Figure out a way to clamp now so you don't have to do it when you have wet glue/JBW.
5) mix the JBW 50/50 and stir well, then smear onto the MALE part (I like to use Popsicle sticks for mixing and applying)
6) press the male part into the hole and clamp, the using the rounded edge of the Popsicle stick create a fillet or rounded mound of the JBW that was squeezed out around the joint.
7) let dry in a warm area.

You don't want to put the JBW in the female side as it will be pushed deeper into the part and cause more problems.
Kenny, this is real helpful info for any of these type of things. I appreciate it and hope to put it some place in order to remember it for when that day comes along and I have to do something like this.
