Samco IC to IM hose

Well, since I currently have mine off (making space for 
reaching the alternator bolts), and I've taken it off and 
on 6 or 7 times in the last couple of months, this is how 
I do it. Without removing anything else (well, the old 
hose), put the IM pipe end on first. Push it as far up the 
pipe as possible. The other end of the Samco will be still 
straight, just below the IC outlet. Now flex the IC outlet 
end up, and just get a bit of the hose over the outlet. 
Now keep pulling up on the hose, and start rotating it. It 
takes a couple of full rotations, and mine just turns 
right on. Make sure that you have the hose clamps on the 
correct ends, BTDT. A little bit of oil also helps (it 
gets there anyway), just around the ends. Also make sure 
that you re-center the hose once it is fully on, just pull 
it towards the IC.
Its really easy to get the hose on with the IC out, but 
you don't want to do that, its a couple of hours to do (at 
least for me).
