Default water jacket still clogged

Thanks for all of your help guys, but my waterjacket still does not want to come clean. I have partial flow through it but when I run my engine the 5/8" hose from the pump to the cylinder head expands and breaks. Obviously there is a restriction in flow going through the water jacket which is creating a backpressure. If anyone else has any suggestions, please feel free to post them.It would be much appreciated

Could it just have a blown head gasket...blowing pressure into the water system? Even though it may not leak water the other way.(water in the cylinder)

My big Cat's do that once in while....OOOOHHH..RATSSS...there goes another $15,000!

Good Luck...Mark Congden
