yes, clams are up and removed. upper came off without issue, it's just the lower connection to the radiator that is the stopping point now.You've removed the hose clamp and tried twisting the hose? Often times they get stuck on there over many years and need a little coaxing. Or cut a slit perpendicular to the mounting location, then twist it around some.
already drained.Draining the radiator first should help with this. There's a blue drain plug on the bottom of the radiator.
Also had this happen once. Stop whining and get it done. Giving up....what's that?already drained.
I'm giving up. THanks guys. Just going to leave the old lower hose on and pay someone a few months from now to do a proper flush and to replace that hose.
Spray it down with PB Blaster/Liquid Wrench to break the surface tension then pull straight back HARD. Do not twist it, you will shear the lug off of the rad outlet.Been dorking with this thing for 2 hours and can't get the damn hose off the radiator. Any suggestion?
