Get a long piece of hose so that you have something to push it on with and then trim it to length after you have got it secured under the manifold.
It wasn't fun, but it held up for me. I had my manifold off a few weeks ago and was going to redo it, but it was on there fine so I left it.

Put the hose on, then slide the clamp where it is supposed to go. Then you can stick the long screwdriver in from the pass side through the space in the manifold and tighten it up easy. What works really good is one of those screwdriver shafts that are like a spring so you can tighten it up at an angle.
It helps to remove the oil filler tube sometimes too, depending on your type of screwdriver. May not be needed though...
It took me a long time and lots of swearing before I figured it out, but now I could change it again in about 5 minutes - pretty easy!
