Question about Boating
I've never had any water pump problems before having the water pump replaced last week. First time in the water the water pumps good at idel and slow speed, but after running a few minutes at medium to high speed the pressure drops and eventually stops all together. It also appears to be discharging a lot more water around the lower unit when running the motor with water hose connected using earmuffs.
The motor is used in salt water, but flushed after each use. It has been several months since I've used it though.
Any suggesions other than take it back to the Marina that serviced it.
You need to find out if they just replaced the water pump impellar or the whole impellar housing make sure bolts are tight at mating surface what may have happened is the impellar tube may have not been lined up correctly during installation does the motor get hot let me know so i can figure it out theres only so many things it could be but if it stops pumping youll be in trouble comment me back
