3/8 coolant hose leaking

Question

I had a bad coolant leak with upper radiator hose that connects to the top of the motor, I replaced the hose I believe it was 6”. Put it back together it’s still leaking, later discovered there was a hole in the metal pipe that connects to the hose I welded the hole gridded the weld down the put jb weld over my weld for some extra security. Put it back together no leaks 🎊🎊🥳. Then later discovered another hose leaking the gies from the radiator to coolant tank! Its a 3/8 hose 200-300 psi hose. My question is can i just replace the hose and use clamps instead these quick connects ends on the hose?

In a pinch I have just put a peice of hose on with clamps to get the truck home. Then I fix it correctly at the shop. Ultimately there should only coolant pressure there (no more than 15 lbs.) unless there is an issue with your engine.
