    Well I finally found my problem. When I bought my engine about 4 years ago, I put plugs in all to openings so that nothing would get inside. Well this bad boy was in the lower water pump inlet, completely blocking it off. It was kind of tucked in pretty good, so I didn't see it when I installed the lower hose. I'm extremely happy that it was not something worse....Thanks for all the help.... 20210125_170319.jpg

    That would cause a "problem" with flow for sure. :)

    This is most excellent news. I guess the cap did what it was supposed to do, stop anything from getting in... So when you going to make a video with you cruising around town, turning all those heads?
