First easy check is to get some line trimmer cord(about 6 inches long) and with the motor running push it in and out of the water telltail hole.Sometimes this will unclog some debris.Hope this helps

I have 1996 700 waveraider exaust hose keeps biring holes in them motor runs cool why please help!!!

most marine engines use water in the exhaust to cool the hoses
check that there is not a problem with the pump system
the water is picked up from underneath the craft passed through the cooling jacket of the engine and norm,ally exits out the exhaust pipe
It would not hurt to talk to a marine shop that handles your make of gear and find out what is wrong

Triton shower faults

If its a trickle occasionally its normal, when you turn off shower the water is still in pipe right up to shower head, it cools down, contracts and backs away from the head, when house gets warmer water expands up to the shower head and trickles out.

1975, 7.5 Kohler marine genset, runs only with the reset depresed

Can't search for a manual without model, type, serial, etc numbers...

A few things to take a look at:

1) Oil level / pressure sending unit. This is normally bypassed as long as the start switch is pressed. When engine starts, and switch is released, engine will die if sending unit is defective, or you are low on oil.

2) Exhaust temperature sensors. Older units were notorious for burning these up.

3) Cooling Water Temperature sensor. These cause trouble often, but mostly due to water pump impeller being eaten away by galvanic action and not able to pump water as effecively. End result is water temp higher than normal, which trips the switch, which kills the engine.

4) Alternator (generator) output not as it should. If output doesn't rise to proper level within a few seconds of engine start, the engine will be shut down.

5) Choke not working as it should

6) Bad fuel, bad fuel pump, clogged fuel filter.

15hp mariner only idels with the choke out

Hello! Draining the tank was a necessary move. You will need to remove carburetor, take it apart and clean it. It is a an easy job; they are quite simple. All you will need is a new gasket and you can make one. If the fuel filter is inside the gas tank, take it out and clean. If it's an inline filter you can replace it with an ordinary lawnmower inline. Use a carburetor cleaning solution. When you reassemble, lube the choke so it moves freely. Also clean the gas line.

Dry all spark generation parts. A hair dryer works well.

If you require more assistance don't hesitate to send a comment.
