Hey guys just replaced the thermostat on the ea.
Flushed the cooling system out by taking off the heater hose in between runners 5 and 6, real prick of a place to get to. Took me long enough to get the b###### thing off, should've cut the bugger, now iv spent the last hour trying to get the new hose on. Any easy way of getting it back on, or am i gonna need to go out and buy a doz and go from there?

Cheers guys if you know of any tips and tricks

you gotta get it from underneath, going in up the front of the starter motor. piece of cake by comparison doing it this way.
