Assuming that you're not going to be putting that CSV back into service, would you be willing to cut it apart to try and determine if and how it failed?

As I've said before, I keep bleating on about my preference for metric Cohline hose over the inch-sized J30R(9/14) hose because I've experienced leaks when using 5/16" J30R9 hose on my van, even with double-clamping. So please consider that as another possible source of your leak.
I'm fully aware that many others claim to have used 5/16" hose with no problems for years. Maybe they're just better mechanics than I am, or luckier ones.
Oh, and for anyone who's interested, I just stumbled across this document
which should provide some enlightenment on what all the SAE J30R numbers actually mean. Scroll down to page 5 for a table comparing the hose specs.
