Don't remember how I came up with this, but what I do is:
- Take the hose
- Squirt a little WD-40 on the ID of the hose
- Stick my arm through it so my hand is almost poking out one end
- Slip the clamp on the end of the hose
- Reach up and install it on the heater box. You can touch the edge of the heater box opening with your fingers and spread the end of the hose from the inside until you work it on
- Then install the engine end

<<Clark Hartzel asked:

OK guys and gals, you have all done this at one time or another.  How do
you get the long heater hose onto the heater box?  The right side was
easy enough as you can access it thru the wheel well.  The left side
hose connects to the heater above and past the transmission and I can
barely see up there let alone get my arm in there.>>
