Please elaborate on this problem, not sure of model or the overflow hose you have mentioned.
If this is the drain hose you can flush using a jet spray and using some drain cleaning detergent.

Why is gas coming out the Overflow not sure that I have the hoses hooked up right

They ARE backwards. You have two ******* on one side of the fuel pump and one on the other. Disconnect the fuel supply. The air hose is the breather hose from the valve chamber. The fuel pump works on pressure and vacuum. The single nipple is from the pump to the carb. The other two? Sherlock Holmes it and look at hose lengths.

Not pulling coolant from overflow jug

Pressure testing just tests that the radiator cap resists a certain amount of positive pressure. I assume you are saying that it is not drawing back from the overflow when the engine cools down. It is likely that the coolant is being blocked right inside the overflow jug by some dirt or debris. Remove the overflow jug and clean it out - and clean the overflow hose too, in case it is obstructed.

Do not blow to the switch. Blow from the switch to the tub. The blockage is soap scum in the air bell on the side of the tub. You may have to run a small wire into the tub area where the air hose attaches on the side of the tub.

My washing machine keeps overflowing whats wrong

Top load or front? If top loader, the pressure fill switch may be unplugged or broken. Hose leads from the switch to the tub. If the hose is disconnected or has a hole in it, or is plugged the washer will continue to fill with no shutoff.

Injector hose assembly overflows when filling hot or cold water selections only. Warm water filling does not overflow the hose assembly. Is this a bad injector nozzel valve or something else?

The injector hose is stiff from age, and the injector/anti-siphon assy is probably calcified.

Replace the Injector hose, and injector to tub hose (they usually fail right about this time and are relatively cheap), and clean the injector assembly with calcium remover and a toothbrush. The dole valve to injector assy hose should be fine.

There is a clear tube behind the pull sart housing and above the water pump that leaks coolant when my 1997 polaris 400 exlorer 2 stroke gets to operating temp. What does this mean

There is most likely corrosion on the aluminum or steel connector pipe for the hose, you must drain the coolant and remove the pull start housing to gain access to the clamps for the hose, unscrew and remove the hose and clean the pipe or pipes connections with a wire brush and sand paper strip to remove any corrosion on the aluminum or steel tubing, also make sure the inside of the rubber tubing is clean I would just replace the hose while I was in there. Replace hose, tighten clamps, and add coolant to proper level. Start and check for leaks.
