Found a leak on the hose that connects from the back of the intake to the heater core. Does anyone here have any tricks up their sleeves that would make it easier to do this? Getting to that squeeze clamp by the firewall is a PITA. Gordon gave me some tips over the phone (Thanks), but I wanna know about others opinion.
I don't really have any tips or hints for changing out the hose (patience and persistence, really...) but I figured I'd let you know - leaks are common at the back of the manifold at the outlet to the heater core.
