Hi. If you just want to run the motor then you can do it in you driveway. Go to a sports store with boating equipment and ask for "Muffs" to run your boat motor out of water. You can see a pictures of outboard motor muffs on google images:

http://www.google.com/images?hl=en&source=imghp&q=muffs+for+outboard&gbv=2&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=

Take the muffs and place them over the water intakes located above the propeller (look like vents on each side). Hook a garden hose up the muffs and start water flow. Make sure nothing is near the propeller. Make sure to pump the bulb in the fuel line to the motor until it stiffens. Crank the motor. When the motor starts, you should see water start to flow out of the back of the motor near the cover and out of the center of the propeller with the exhaust. You must keep water flow to the motor using the muffs while it is running or it will burn up.

I have a 1984 glstron boat wit a 70 hp motor with a 13x15 pitch prop. and have to play with the power trm to get boat to plane out. How do I know if I have the right pitch prop.?


You do not tell us the size of your boat. I sounds as if you have the motor set too high in the transom. Does the motor just rev up and not move the boat or does it lug down and not seem to have enough power? More info, better ideas.

How do i replace the water pump in a 2005 150 hp evinrude outboard motor


Take the cowling off. Also drop the foot. There wil be a stainless linkage rod that runs the length of the motor that you will have undo to drop the foot. The water impeller will be inside a stainless casing that you will have to disassemble.

Free download for repair manual for an Evinrude 1987 40HP outboard motor


My outboard motor is old and used.When I went to run it for the first time everything worked except when I went to put it in forward gear the boat went slowly but when I gave it more gas the engine just reved up but the boat wasn't going any faster.The motor is 40hp gale model.I think because it is bought used the prop is not the right one and it seems like it's slipping as I go faster.
I would appreciate any feedback on this problem.

Thax, Don
