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

Oil coming out of were water goes in on leg of yamaha 15 horsepower outboard why is this so ???


If your water pump has failed it could be that your lower shaft gear oil is getting past and running out.
The water pump on those should be replaced yearly. They are a rubber wheel with fins on it. They dry out and weather rott wich leads to their failure.

Water pump


The water pump is a flexible impellor located in the top of the bottom section of the leg of the outboard. It is driven by the drive shaft to the prop that is spinning all the time the motor is running. You will find it behind or near the water inlet slots at the bottom of the leg

How do i replace a force 120 impellar pump?


Most impellers are in the leg and require the lower oart of the leg to be removed by disconnecting the gear linkage and undoing the bolts that hold the lower half of the leg on, they are just above the water intake.Don't forget the bolt near the prop. Wiggle the leg and slide it down to remove, then place the leg on the bench. The drive shaft protrudes through the impeller housing, remove the bolts that hold the housing on and slide it off. When fitting the new impeller be sure to fold the fins in the correct direction. When re installing the leg be careful to align the cooling pipes correctly.

Cheers, Timo.

Where is the water pump on a 1985 yamaha 25 horse?


In the leg, undo the gear link and undo the bolts that hold the lower half of the leg on, they are above the water intake pointing up, don't forget the bolt neat the prop. Wiggle the leg off and put it on the bench. The drive shaft protrudes from the center of the water pump housing, remove the bolts and slide the housing off. When you replace the impeller make sure the fins are folded in the correct direction to avoid pinching. Be sure to align the water cooling pipes when reassembling the leg.

Cheers, Timo

Gear box oil leak


Here is a website where a manual for you outboard may be purchased.  Outboard Marine went out of buisness in 2000 and thus no parts of origial manufacture are support is available . Therir are secondary markets .    THe Lower case splits in half and their is a seal around the prop shiftm which is pressed in. The seal between the cases are cut o-rings which are placed and glued into place with gasket seal.
The water pump is located where the case splits a little bit higher. You must open the little port on the side and take out one of the screws to the connecting shift linkage to split the case. After splitting the case the drive shaft and water pickup tube(s) wil come out of the powwer head or the tubs may stick into the power head which is ok. Place the lower skag into a vice and remove the 4 or 5 screws to the water pump housing. Remove and replace impellor and impellor plate if available. If part(pieces) of the rubber impellor is missing flush out the tubes and the power head to remove them.   When reinstalling the lower unit use a flash light to make sure that the tubes return  to the proper place in the power head and the shift lever is resecured. If you need more assistance, just write back. I was an Outboard motor mechanic for five years about the time of your motor.
