Need to clean things up a lot, I'll do what I can to clean it up after I get the tensioner back on.
It started to thunder so I had to call it quits today, I still need to tackle the lower rad hose, I'm just hoping removing the SC Pulley is enough to get at it, if so then I only have to fight to get the hose clamp tool on the lower clamp.

I got the upper part of the lower rad hose off, but that lower is a pain, I just cannot get the hose clamp tool on the clamp, the parts I need to grasp with the clamp tool face downwards, so I really cannot get to the clamp, I tried getting it from the top, and from the bottom, I cannot see any good way to get at it.
I am out of ideas too, well other than loosen the baffle underneath, and try to get at it from underneath, I am doubtful that will work though.
So I am open to ideas..
If only the clamp was rotated more towards the top I could get at it...

I am half tempted to throw * cutoff wheel on my dremel, and carefully cut the clamp off, and replace it with a worm gear type, even though I do not want to sue that style of clamp.
I suppose if I can get it cut off I could order a new spring clamp, and make sure this one gets clamped on facing upwards, that way I can access it in the future if necessary.

I'll wait till tomorrow, take out the battery, and battery tray, and see if I can get to it, if not breaking out the dremel!

Took battery out, had to remove the cross bar to get the damn batter out.
Removed the battery tray, fought with getting to it for a long time, many curse words were yelled.
Jacked it up, put it on jack stands, used a bungee to hole that stupid plastic baffle out of my way, fought with it for like 2 hours, and finally was able to move the clamp enough with channel locks, so that I could get the hose clamp tool on it.
Lower hose went in place easily, reused clamp, but orientated it so I can get to it easier if I ever need to again.
The upper part of the lower hose fought me going on, almost like one end of the hose was slightly bigger, looked the same to me though.
I'll never change a lower rad hose for anybody in the future if the clamp is orientated like mine was, not worth thew trouble
I'd love to sucker punch the ******* that placed that clamp on the way it was!

I almost had a issue with the heater hose connect things that run to the tensioner, I am pretty sure they messed up threading the holes for each one of them, because I started both bolts by hand, and they went most of the way, then they would not go any further, I removed them and noticed little aluminum slivers on the bolts, so I knew what that meant.
So I went to my little stash of screws and bolts that I keep, I got lucky I found two metal screws with a tiny bit bigger diameter, but a tiny bit shorter, they worked perfectly, and the crisis was averted.
I went ahead and installed the alternator, as I seen I'd have room to get to the power steering res with my long skinny funnel, so I'll top that off when I get my royal purple PS fluid tomorrow.
I still have one dilemma, somehow I lost my alternator braces stud nut, I screwed it on the stud so I'd not lose it, so the hell if I know how I lost it..
I guess I'll have to take the stud in a hardware store, and try to find a nut that fits, I searched online but found nothing, the Nalley Buick CM Parts site I used to use changed, and now I can not see all parts and part numbers for stuff on their exploded diagrams...

And no more squeaky sound driving me nuts, it is purring like a kitten now, at least compared to what it sounded like.
