Did the same job on the 89 I used to own. I used the same type of pool hose and it worked great. I tied a string around both hoses and worked them into place while the tank was slowly brought up. This was a fun job that I did my self with the use of some floor jacks. Have fun because I remember learning a few new curse words during this project.
