I got the hose kit and have replaced most of the radiator hoses that don't require removing the intake manifold. I should be done with those this weekend. After reading about how it would probably take a day to take the intake off and another to replace it, i decided not to replace the ones in that require taking it off. I'd like to schedule a time with someone to help with that job. I'm in Alabama, but I wouldnt mind driving to GA like i do for the meetups.
