water lift suspect

Water lift muffler, has yours ever clogged ? Mine was still passing water , but i'm thinking restricted.
Flow to the raw water pump seemed good , raw water pump was good ( rebuilt it anyway ) heat exchanger seemed to flow good . Bought a new mixing elbow .
I haven't run it yet with all the new parts I'm putting it back together today . I'm thinking the only thing I haven't checked is the water lift .

You mentioned a heat exchanger, which means your engine is fresh water cooled. They normally run hotter than a raw-water cooled engine, which is actually highly desirable. 175F is about right for a fresh water system.
