    Default I think the hose still connect

    I think the hose still connects between the OD and gimbal. Another hose connects on the inside of the transom. The hose is molded and must be installed properly. Do it right. Include the bellows like JUST-IN-TIME said. Inspect and lube the U-joints and gimbal bearing.
    Fix minor things (replace wear items for preventative maintenance.) that cause major problems before they break.
