Nah, better shrink her right. Cut a piece of standard 1/8 inch inner diameter vacuum hose approximately 25 mm (1 inch) longer than the damaged area.
Cut off the mini-tube vacuum hose on each side of the damaged area.
Dip the mini-tube hose ends in commercially available lacquer/paint thinner containing Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK). This solvent will seal the mini-tube in the vacuum hose. All lacquer thinners have the goods. Other type paint thinners may not.
Shake the service joint after assembly to ensure the solvent is dispersed.
Test the system for a vacuum leak in the repair area. Use the Vacuum Pump if you have one. You'll be surprise how well this works.
