It's the vacuum hose from the inlet manifold?

Sorry not that one the much smaller one it’s only a few mm in size I’ve got the fuel pipe and vacuum pipes connected this other one doesn’t seem big enough to connect anything to

I had a similar problem with the "copper pipe" on my fuel tap...................  used a soldering iron and ran a thin film of solder over it to seal all the holes.  I'd guess you could probably use epoxy resin if you haven't a soldering iron.
