Had port engine running warm. Cleaned all the usual suspects and still running warm. Started to disassemble things and found this in the tube from the pump to the drive. Now we will remove all tubes and see what we see.

Funny or pathetic, I knew the shape of that hose before you said it was a 3208. That hose usually drains I think, wonder what the tube bundle looks like. 1st year I had my boat I found out we were running on barely 3-4 open tubes.
