When I did the radiator and all that stuff in there, Scott at SJM said pull the pump to make it easier, Just keep the hose ends above the resivoir and it will not leak all over. I covered the ends with sandwich bags to keep them clean. if you put them on the intake manifold ( a conveinent spot ) move them before closing the hood. (yes I did,ouch).
Keep the pump upright so it does not lose it's prime.
