Question - Return Line on Fuel Bowl

When reinstalling my HPOP I made a true ******* move and sheered off the male side of the fitting shown in this picture.

Any suggestions?

I was going to try to get the fitting, and put it back on with the torx screws, then cut off the return line (because the sheered off section is in the flare fitting) and then just use a short piece of hose with hose clamps between the two, assuming it isn't under tremendous pressure.

Any thoughts??

I'm not suggesting it is any better than stock, but what about just deleting the return???

Anyone have one of these fittings they want to get rid of?

Looks like they are a weak spot and aren't under heavy pressure.
