You could take off the lower unit and leave the boat home. All they need is the bottom. The propshaft seal can be cut from fishing line. There should be another seal on the shift assembly and a third on the powershaft. Some you could do, but the shop can pressure test before and replace only what you need. Then pressure test after the repair to verify it seals.

No water flowing out my 40hp envenrude outboard water exaust port


Plossibly clogged intakes (grim in intakes) or thermostats not opening. I would suggest pulling the lower unit and then your thermostat housing and use a water hose to back-flush it out. Also check the thermostats in boiling water to make certain opening.

have you changed the impeller inside the lower unit.

There is copper pipe to redirect water up into the engine.

When you replaced the impeller make the copper pipe is insert onto the engine.

1997 Evinrude 50 HP SPL. I have removed all the bolts holding the lower rnd to the engine, it seems to be hanging up on the shify shaft, and I can't find a way to drop the unit. It drops down about...


Okay this is on total memory. The shift shaft for a lot of those engines goes right up through the pilot shaft and exits just in front of the block under the carburetor(s). You will see the **** linkage arm connected to this shaft sometimes it's double nutted. See if you can slide the lower unit back up to the housing and put a bolt in it to hold then undue the shift shaft linkage, Remove the bolt and drop the lower unit. Be careful of the water tubes and check make sure the rubber grommets are in place in the pump housing not on the tubes. Clean up the pump housing and install the new impeller kit.
Put the impeller down the shaft on top of the impeller plate, lightly grease the inside of the housing the impeller plate and impeller. Then lower the pump housing down to the impeller while turning the drive shaft clockwise lightly push down on the impeller housing. This will fold the impeller blades all in the correct position and provide lubrication to the pump until the water gets into the pump. To make life easier re-grease the drive shaft spline and the water tube grommets this will ad ease in reinstalling the lower unit. be careful to make sure you thread the drive shaft, water tubes and shift shaft all in at the same time. After installation you may find you need to adjust the **** linkage.

Where does the water exit a 1971 25 hp evinrude? how do I know it's pumping water?


I do believe the water jets are down on the lower unit by the prop. There should be a white swirl of white bubbles shooting out.

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
