Re: Engine hose(s) removal,, help

I use a cotter pin puller to get hoses off. Put the point under the edge of the hose and run it around the barb. As you go around, you can get a little deeper each time until you can kind of get it under quite a bit and push it off the the tool while rotating the hose back and forth while pulling. I put a little grease on the fitting when putting them back on.

Re: Engine hose(s) removal,, help

I use the flat edge of aregular screwdriver. Get it in there and twist, working my way around. IT's not a great experience though.

I believe anything that pushes it off, rather than pulls it off is best. Pulling actually decreases the diameter of the hose. Pushing increases it.

Regards,
Brad

Re: Engine hose(s) removal,, help

I found two tools on Amazon that should do the trick. Thanks for all the info! I have them in my Boat wish list if anyone feels generous.

Re: Engine hose(s) removal,, help

The hoses aren't meant to be removed on a regular basis. Have you considered putting a T with a valve in it so that you can easily drain and replace the coolant that way?

Re: Engine hose(s) removal,, help

I would have to agree with Alex W. A "tee" fitting with a section of hose and a valve is what I use to use on my raw water feed so that I could easily winterize with proper anti freeze. The extended hose will also allow you to work in a open less confined space.

Re: Engine hose(s) removal,, help

Yup, the thought did cross my mind. I will add the to the ever growing project list. I will get the tools regardless.

So would you go with a Groco solution? (well engineered but $$$$)
Any other product recommendations for this type Tee of application?

I used this method recently on several hoses. Once the rubber is soft, they pull right off. Works especially well when the temperature is really cold < 20F.

Re: Engine hose(s) removal,, help

Sorry, I don't have any advice for the type of T. I assume there is a common well known good implementation.

I personally solved this problem by removing the water heater from my boat. It improved the boat in many nice ways, but I can also understand why not everyone is interested in doing so.

Get the hose hook. I used to be an auto mechanic. Used them all the time to get hoses off. They work great!

Re: Engine hose(s) removal,, help

Actually, when you need to get a good grip on something that's just hard to grip?

Take a plain cotton work glove that fits snugly. Spray it with sprayment or similar spray adhesive, then dust it with fine sand or grit.

Let cure thoroughly. Now you've got a really good way to grip hoses, oil filters, all sorts of stuff.
