    Have the hoses developed soft spots? They're pretty bullet proof except for being overheated. It's possible for them to get a little crooked when not fully clamped down. That could cause a leak.

    The port side is running at normal temp? Impellers can dry rot pretty quickly so worth making sure you've got proper water supply and no missing impeller pieces obstructing anything.
