Seems to me that this would be just as effective at blocking the air flow, given my "stuck on/open" valve condition, as removing all the components and installing block-off plates. Although not as clean looking, it would get me back in full service until I have more time to do the physical removal.
Exhaust heat would *melt* the rubber hose.

Edit: I should have said exhaust heat WILL melt the rubber hose since your valves are reportedly "stuck" open.
