Broken ac condeser fitting

Today I gutted my truck interior and took the whole front end off well when taking the ac condenser line off the ac condenser pipe broke. I was wondering has any one ever tried putting a rubber line on there to the ac hose would it hold the pressure? I was just wondering if not I guess I'll just have to get a new one.

You'll never get it to seal, the condenser is on the hi pressure side. Typical operating pressures are going to be 120-160 psi. Your only way out of this is a new condenser, or maybe a guy could TIG that back together.
Next time use a backup wrench on those fittings!

I have a used condenser if you need it.
