water flow GPM per HP of an engine?

My Friend Hank is having trouble with his old V2 faryman diesel that's running warm to hot. I've finally convinced him that engine temp is affected by water flow more then anything. His is sea water cooled. I think it's around 20 hp. there's a formula I'm sure. or a rule of thumb; flow / HP?

thanks in advance !
