Default Radiator hoses

I want to change my radiator hoses and they look hard to get at, wondered if anyone had any tips.

Thanks in advance.

Bob

To get to the top radiator hose, the upper intake manifold has to lift out of the way. If your going to the trouble, you might as well change anything else that needs changing, if you have some mileage on your cruiser (plugs & wires).

Thanks, have 30k miles and just changed the plugs and wires %$%#%$#.

Looking at it thought I might be able to get at the clamp with out lifting the manifold again, but just my luck I won't be able to.

Bob,

Also, at least on mine...the middle bolt on the upper manifold had a hook shaped hanger device that held the upper radiator hose level between the upper mounting and the radiator itself. That hooked shaped device would make it really hard (if you have it) to replace the hose without taking off the manifold.
