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.
