Been there, done that!  I'm 6'4 big hands, no space.  I went and found a
friend who is 5'6 small hands, lotsa space.  HE threaded the new hose on!  I
bought him dinner.  I figured I'd made out well!  Only trouble was I'd
bought a cheap hose...When it started leaking 6mos. later, the auto parts
store replaced the hose with a better one at N/C  but it required another
dinner.  This time my friend decided to dine in style!  I think you made out
better.  Shortly after that I got my 87 5KCSTQ and sold the old car to a
friend.  As far as I know, the hose is still OK.
