Default water pipe rusted out on '95 toy pickup

The metal pipe on my '95 Toy pickup extending out from the top of the
engine with the rubber hose connecting to the other metal pipe, which
connects to the water pump (I guess), rusted out really bad. After I
removed all the nasty rust, I lost about half an inch of the metal
pipe so that there was a leak form that connection, which is right
above the alternator. Now, I have a big problem is the factory hose is
too short to connect the two metal pipes due to the loss of length for
hose clamping. The inside diameters for both ends of the hose are
different, one is 1.75 inch, the other is about 1.65 inch. Actually,
the unit should be metric, but I measured with the conventional unit.
I checked with pepboys and kragen stores. The hose they carry only
have one size for both ends, 1.75 inch. They say use screw type clamp
can tighten the other end o.k.. I tried it, but I'm skeptical since
the hose could easily slide over the metal pipe without any
resistance. To weld a short piece of pipe to the damage one seems
infeasible, the other easier option is get a longer hose to compensate
the lost section but stuck with the two different inside diameters.
the original hose has a 90 degree bend. Any solutions to my situation
will be appreciated.

What about a shim/reducer on one end before you clamp it?

In a daze, I read Chris Phillipo's post, then collasped.

This sounds like a dealer part. Although I'm kinda suprised that you
couldn't just clamp it. But a tenth of an inch is rather big.

But isn't this pipe the thermostat housing? That could be easily replaced.
You could reuse the old hose.

Clean up the end of the pipe and then put a bead of JB Weld around it
for retention. Let it cure for at least 24 hours, I have used this in
the past for relining water pump housings and it works. You could even
glue on an extension that will fit over the old pipe.

Thanks for everyone's info. I'll try to use JB weld to see if I can fix it or not.
