I give up...I can't get this hose back on the car.  Half an hour of
trying from all different angles...I even separated the two
halves...no dice.

Between the lower coolant hose, the two rack hoses, the radiator, the
aux coolant pump, and the hanger for the two rack hoses, absolutely
everything is in the way of the triangle-shaped metal bracket welded
to the metal pipe.  I just can't seem to get the angle right...every
time I think I've got a good angle to sneak the head past the
pump+radiator, the triangle bracket or the end of the pipe itself
hits something.

   I had to undo one of the pump->rack lines just to get the hose off
the car in the first place.  It was a really tight fit getting it
out, but it came out....and I don't remember how...
