    ok were exactly does the water come out of from the impeller, is it the little hole on the side. Also should water come out all the time. Noticed today on alum sometimes it was coming out and other times it wasn't. When it wasn't coming out i was usually running fast and on plane. Just curious don't want to trash this motor.
  2. if u havent put a new one in it in the last 4to 5 years u should replacw it any way its not a very had job a good hour should have it in

    ok what do they cost any ideas. And while its apart what else should be done. I am assuming lower unit check over and lube. I checked all the bolts and screws in the top end motor area yesterday and have new plugs coming and a spare set. Fresh gas in tank and ran good all day at alum other than my questions about impeller

    NAPA sell them for about $20.00 a kit. Includes gaskets seals etc. Well worth the cost and lots more.Get your model and year that's all they need.
