1990 and newer spiders use a totally different hose. Putting a hose on a 1989 and older is a piece of cake compared to a 1990 and newer. I have 3 different hoses or better said, hoses from 3 different vendors and they all are too tight to go on the water pump end in my opinion.
As mentioned, hot water and lubricant should usually do the trick but that should not be the case. I call ******** on this one. Someone needs to make a hose that fits better on the water pump end.
Obviously this has been an issue for many years.
I am still running my old hose because i just haven't felt like trying to put a new one on again.
