It seems to me that the water would be cooler exiting the heater core. If I had no heat in the cab I could see them being the same.
Actually, Dave it is fairly simple. What is going on is that there is such a volume of water flowing through the heater core that it has very little time to give up its heat. If you slow the water down then there will be a lot of time to transfer more of the heat to the air. Sounds goofy at first, but think about it and it should make sense.

I guess I always figured since i was getting heat(not near as much as before,but stil OK) ther had to be a differance in the temp on the lines. I have felt that when holding the lines.Cant tell you how much because I am working off of feel only. The temp control on the dash is either full on or off, no adjustment as before, which leads me to believe it is a blend door problem. But when you add it all up it is probably a problem with both. I hope to be able to pull the dash and jerk out the hvac box and rebuild it all. I have not ha ac due to a leak that i cant find. I am thinking i need to replace it all. The part are not that expensive. The info is aprreciated and i would agree with what your are saying. I think next time I am at the house i will blow out the heater core and see what happens. Nothing to loose.
