Question about Boating
It would be nice to have a year.....but you dont need a diagram. in back of the prop on the lower unit there should be 3 or more holes/ slots on each side.....water gets sucked up from here. then where your lower unit bolts on to the tower there is a waterpump on the inside it pushes water through a 1/2 metal tube into the bottom of the motor then it squrits out . if its not sucking up water and or peeing then you have 1 of 2 problems
#1 blockage in the peeing tube. bugs and mud dobbers like it in there. gentle push a clothes hanger into the tube.
#2 bad water pump I change mine every year call me crazy if you like but if you run your motor without water you will be buying a new one
