heater hose? on 91 corsica

hose coming off the water pump on a 3.1 chevy 91 corsica sprung some leaks..hose is normal heater hose for about 6-8" then it goes to steel tubing..
i tried splicing heater hose in after removing the bad steel section but its leaking farther along now.. looks like i have to replace the hose.. anyone familiar with this procedure? a mechanic buddy said i may have to move and prop up the motor to get to this on the underneath end...any thoughts? ideas? its a tomorrow project anyways so any experience would be appreciated..

same thing another buddy suggested.. we're going to try that route tomorrow. seems the factory part isnt too expensive (about 13.00 wholesale 24.00 retail). but squirrelly to fit back in without a lift... thanks for the tip David J and Lynne J Shepherd
