looks like I gotta pull the ac compresser and ac bracket to access that hose that may or may not be leaking.

are there any other suprises involved to remove that particular hose?


edit

pulled alt,ac comp,idler pully and air box.the hose in question was toast,also found evidence of the ol 318 really running hot.the exposed portion of the head gasket crumbled.into a grey powder.my 93 Toyota is like that....I cooked it until it wouldn't run anymore....lol.

hopefully I can get a new hose on tonight,put water in it....no leaks,no overheating....and no running bad due to water getting into cylinders...ect.ill let you guy know.

hose split on the bottom of intake side.



the head gasket crumbling into powder.
