You can use regular bent tube hose ends without the swivel stems. The only thing in there is an O'Ring. Usually a lock wire retains the pieces together---sometimes a crimped section. But the stem swivels (rotates) on the stem and they will leak. Some more than others. And the more movement, the more the o'ring stresses, and/or is exposed to the fluids---i guess fuel in this case--and deterioration starts.
