SUCKS!!!!! I almost lost my mind doing this bit of PM!!!! Used the Silicone hose with constant-torque clamps so at least it looked pretty when it was finally done. Just a tip to those who have not done it, put the hose on the block nipple first, and use a BFH and long pipe to tap the hose into place...use lots of soapy water or silicone spray I did the full flush...well almost, I couldn't get the freaking block drain plug out, not even with an air rachet! I'm guessing someone didn't use anti-sieze compound on it the last go round.
