Water does not come out of the port hole all of the time.

I think my water pump on Evenrude 8 HP 4 stroke outboard engine isbad. I want to know where the water pump is located and if I can fix or replace it myself. Sometimes water comes out of the port hole and sometimes it doesn't.

1996 Evenrude 8 HP 4 stroke outboard engine, model E8FRLEUR97, serial # H 09365678,

You might just have dirt in the water view port try a real smal drill bit BY HAND to clean the hole . if the morot doesn't run hot then you really don't have a problem

Is this a two stroke?-If it is you most likely have a primary seal going bad (crankcase seal on the ignition side will lean it out,leaking seal on the other-side of assembly will do just what your describing)Hope this helps you out.....

1982 55 yamaha outboard ,water not coming out the water pump hole in strenght


First thing to check: Disconnect the tiny hose between the check outlet and the engine. Disconnect it at the engine side.
With an airgun, blow in the check hole from outside to engine side.
With an airgun, blow out the engine connection.
Start the engine, check waterflow out of the engine connector. If water, reconnect the hose and check the water at the checkpoint.
If still no water at the engine connection: replace the impeller!
