Default A/C Hose Assembly question

I have a 97 2wd/2.3 5 speed ranger with a leaking a/c hose assembly.

My question: Has anyone replaced the suction/discharge hose assembly? It looks pretty simple on the surface, but since it is not covered in the Chilton/Haynes manuals I thought I would ask before tearing into it.

Additionally, does anyone know the torque specs for the bolt that holds the assembly to the back of the a/c compressor?
Thanks!

I dropped it off at the shop today. It is going to be 108F today, 107F tomorrow, and then we will finish out the week with a string of 105F's. I don't feel like working in the heat anyway
