As was mentioned before, you need to completely clean the area where flange attaches to the body. Preferebly with a soft sand paper. No previous residue should remain there. Make sure the O-rings sits properly and then tighten the bolts. The coolant hoses have a locking pin. After you attache the hose to the flange you need to make sure that the pin is pushed enough to lock. This will prevent the hose from getting lose.

You have come so far and I think you are very close to successfully finish this job. You need to remain calm and proceed with a cool head.
