well the heatcore i am gonna use has copper fittings on them. i thought they were 1/2 but 1/2 is just a little to small to fit over (heating them up works but not great) would that mean that the fittings would be 5/8?

They're probably the standard HC fittings - i.e. the pipe with the flared out end?

I'd just solder some 1/2" barb fittings on it.

what you can try is taking a cup of water and boiling it in the microwave for 2 minutes and then stick you tubing in there for like 1 minute. This worked for my friend.

if you can use a blow lamp, run and get two 1/2 barbs that can be fitted inside the connections, then just solder it, if you cant solder it get some plummers goop or epoxy and just stick the barbs in

this is what i did as well. 5/8 inlet and outlet on my heatercore, using 1/2 inch tubing. i tossed some clamps on just because i'm paranoid...
