On my X15 there is a small line that runs from the transmission cooler to the dripless shaft seal. If you don't clamp off this line, you will lose a lot of AF through the shaft seal/prop.

I would swap pumps and see if the problem follows. To be honest, I would just go ahead and buy a new pump. I always keep a spare on board just in case.
