Perkins 6.354 loosing coolant

My Port engine has been loosing fluid. Maybe a quart or 2 between trips. No sign of coolant in the bilge, no steam from the exhaust. The engine is a 1990, 2,300 hours and has a Mani-Cooler.

Last night I had a mechanic over to help me pull the starboard transmission (that's a whole different story!)

While he was there he also pressure tested the the port engine. It was definitively loosing pressure. He cracked the hose downstream of the tube stack and coolant, not seawater came out.

He said my tube stack probably has a leak. I'm hoping the group can advise me on how to best correct this problem.
