Shiv- That hose, #42 below, has been replaced with a new silicone hose, part number 207763. No idea why they redesigned the plenum water manifold to include a 180 degree bend, but there were some problems with the ones on the Maranellos clogging because they were so small. So they built in a 180 degree bend so the hose would split. Progress, no? Below the parts catalog drawing is what the 575M manifolding looks like and at the bottom is the 612 manifolding. Hoses are bigger for the 612, but not sure that is a big improvement. The new silicone hose should fix it permanently, though.
Did they move the expansion tank to the front of the engine? That could explain it.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
