I believe he WOULD advocate that, probably after prev. issues with corroded fittings & subsequent leakage.

And if you wrench too hard on a fitting into a plastic radiator, well you're buying a new radiator!

X2 on the double hose clamp though, did an emergency repair on a holed hard line last year for someone, and it leaked later 'till I doubled the clamps (opposite orientations BTW).
