Leaking water pump

Our boat has a Johnson WPS 2.9 - the boat is fairly new and it was boxed in. However we noticed water leaking from the box and the floor is badly damp. Opening up the box we found a leak underneath the pump. Have a plate underneath at the moment with the water turned off. Any advice about what to do?

I believe you got fishing !one wrapped between prop and seal. Remove prop and inspect for line and leak around seal. If not, than the seal under water pump plate is leaking your gear oil.

The only oil that can leak from iside your engine is from the gearbox. There is no sump as the engine is lubricated by the oil fed in through the induction system. Clean the area thoroughly and leave it for a while(overnight) then check again. The oil could just be overfill from the 2-stroke tank. By cleaning it first you are given new evidence to identify the leak point. Hope this helps, when you have more info let me know.

How tough is it to change water pump impeller on 15hp johnson

There is no special tricks.Unbolt the gearshift linkage that has access through the side of the leg.Usually a small plate.Unbolt the lower g/box.4 bolts I think.The box should then drop.If not,use a rubber hammer and be patient.Put the lower skeg of the g/box in a vice to make things easier.NOW.When you lift the housing of the w/pump take a note of which way the impellar pump lobes are curled.DON'T put the new impellar in the wrong way.It's probably worth putting in a new seal whilst it's apart.You spin the housing or imp. as you put it together.Use a small bit of grease for the initiall dry start-up.Put some very good grease on the top splines on the driveshaft.It goes straight into the crankshaft.If it corrodes,nothing comes apart.As you put the g/box back on,spin the prop so the splines go back in.There is no special alignment.Gearchange linkage and you go fishing.(take the prop off and regrease the splines on the shaft of it)Hope this helps

40 Hp Johnson outboard motors stalls out after a few minutes running then takes forever to start again

May likely be one of two problems:

1. Fuel flow: Make sure fuel tank vent is open and not blocked while engine running. Check primer bulb is working and no air leaks along hose anywhere. Check function of fuel pump and ensure fuel is getting to the cylinders.

2. Overheating: Check engine isn't overheating and that water pump is operating properly while engine is running.

Water coming out of the transmission lever grease fitting

The water discharge hose goes through the case in back of the motor. The hose or fitting could be broke or loose. If not the discharge then the water pump is leaking.
