Well, took your suggestion on the vacum hose and bought two 12" needle nose pliers both bent and within 60 seconds had the hose on the nipple where it belonged. That was the trick in getting into tight I don't have to drive my Wifes "hello Kitty" car !! Thanks a bunch!!!

Glad to see the needlenose worked out for you. Very useful tools.

You do realize that you are obligated to share a picture or two of the Kitty Car. :p
