That rhythm is INFECTIOUS.
That's a good price for those hose clamp pliers! DEFINITELY GET THEM. You will be VERY glad you did. Your knuckles will too. Regular pliers *might* work, but it'll be quite a tight fit.I think I'm going to attempt this as well this weekend. I should have done it when I replaced my radiator last month. Can it be done from the bottom on jack stands? I plan to order from advance auto:
35631 Felpro Gasket
14358 Stant Thermostat
Is the hose clamp tool really necessary due to the tight fit, or should I pick up hose clamp pliers? Was considering Astro Pnuematics AST9409A.
Yep - can be done from underneath - recommend pulling the oil filter for additional room, but not *necessary*.
I believe I purchased that exact combo of parts when I did mine earlier this year. :thumbsup:
Also recommend replacing the lower hose if you didn't replace it when you did the radiator.
