    If the motor does not appear to be running hot, why don't you put it in the water, idle out of the 5 zone and roll on the throttle slowly and see if water doesn't come out the dump hoses. As several peeps have suggested the one piece plates, depending on year and hole size, don't put out much water @ idle. They are a total loss system, designed to not have too much pressure at W.O.T.
