I don't own a bench vice and because of my lack of mechanical skill, would rather not remove the carb.

Been there. With carb on bike and heated got about 20 deg. rotation. Tried for more and the tube kinked. Still runs fine 6K miles later. I'd probably leave it be or pull the stock tube and drill/tap for a straight fitting.
