I need to replace hose due to leakage around clamp. It looks like I have to cut hose off and turn metal tube in intake to remove it, then place hose on bottom male fitting then top tube and plug top metal tube back into intake manifold.
Never seen hoses connected like this, what keeps the metal tube plugged into the intake from leaking?

BTW this is on a 84 Riviera with a 305 v8 fwd. Thanks!

Either the year is wrong or the engine is wrong. In 1984 there was an Oldsmobile 307 as an option in the Riviera, no Chevrolet 305.
Is that what you have?
Slide the new section of hose over the upper pipe and then down on the lower pipe, lubricate with some grease.

Larry, that’s what I ended up doing. I was used to the hoses that just unclamped and just pulled off. When I cut the hose off the two connections, I only had a space of about 3/8 inch between the two connections and I thought, this can’t be right. Then it dawned on me! Two bolts and a thermostat gasket later, I’m in business. Good tip on draining the antifreeze! Thanks!
