Okay have to replace the water inlet hose to the thermostat on my 4.3lx... any tips on procedure? should the port riser come off to make it easier to access the attachment to the
front of the power steering cooler? Seems pretty buried down there to feel around. and its tight.
Have a top line oil system and captains call Corsa set up.
Any tips to the order of doing this is welcomed. A is the hose on the image , b is the location buried below...

It seems there are some very clever ways to working in a engine bay on a sweet 16. Just did the alternator.. easy coming off tricky going on ..

Thanks for any advance tips ..
