After the previous post I started pulling hoses to see if there was anything plugging them. There was not, however I noticed that one of the hoses that goes into the right side of the boiler was missing a small metal grommet that caps off the end of the hose (every hose has one). I had a look way inside the boiler and there it was. So I guess after nine years it was pulled out of the hose.

I removed the boiler from the top of the unit by removing the two screws holding it in place. It shook out easily, replaced everything and I have pressure and a consistent shot.
I would consider replacing that section of PTFE tubing. If the insert came out once, it'll come out again.
