SOURCE: outboard motor overheating
Mate.The powerhead(engine block) is clogged.Don,t run it anymore untill its cleaned out or the motor will cook.Take the heads off 1st and see whats in the water jackets.It will probably be blocked.A build up of white 'gunk' is the main indicator.If thats the case,a complete cleanout is needed.Hope this helps

Put the motor in neutral.On the leg of the motor there is a little side cover plate.Remove.Undo the bolts.This is the gear change linkage.At the cavitation plate,there is 4 bolts.Remove.If the lower housing does not drop,give it a soft whack with a soft hammer.When dropped,you will see the prop shaft and the gear linkage.Lower it all the way out.Its easy to work on if you put the lower skeg in a vice.Take the water pump apart BUT!!! have a look at which way the impellar blades are pointed.Grease the new impellar as you put it back in and turn it at the same time to get the nodes in properly.Heaps of grease to protect all the bolts.Makes it easier next time.Hope this helps

Testimonial: "cheers much appreciated "
The g/box in your motor holds about 1/2 litre of oil.It comes in usually 1 litre bottles.Squeeze it in the bottom hole with the spout fitted to the bottle untill it comes out the upper hole and then quickly put the screw plugs back in.Hope this helps

if you haven't fixed this already, take the pastic water pick up covers off there are two joiner nuts in there undo them, there is a plastic cone on each end take them off and it will slip through. I own the same model and year outboard.
