Use a small round brass brush (gun shop) to spruce up the bore, and some fairly coarse sand paper to rough up the hose barb, then insert the barb part way into the bore. Apply a bit of JB or other two part epoxy at that point and drive the fitting the rest of the way in.  Give it two full days to cure.
