OK, my bad, the answer to the bracket question was found in an old image.

It's fixed to the bolt at the top right of this image. Doh!

1.6 mk1 engine?...jizza clean is jizza clean...i will sort you some..are you going to the clubs national?

As for the hose connection. A good light file and sand paper to clean it...on fitting a lit smear of rubber grease will help protect it as will the correct coolant.

1.8

Club National? That's the 14/15th September at BMM Warwick I think. Let me see if I'm allowed out of the garden for a day...
The jizza is not critical but it would be good to catch up with you guys.

Your approach to fixing the hose connection sounds a lot more sensible. I was just worried about the wall thickness getting a bit thin. All the other similar bits on the thermostat housing etc had all split. I wouldn't be surprised if the splits occurred when someone used pliers to pull the hoses off given that it's a pressurised system. I've picked up a cooling system pressure tester so I intend to check the system before it goes into a shell.
