Question about Boating

1 Answer

I have a 1979 Sears gamefisher 7.5 hp outboard motor. I replaced the water pump in the gear housing assembly and now i am just trying to reassemble the whole untit back to the motor again. I cannot seem to get the splines on the drive shaft to match with the hole spline it needs to go into. At least I believe that is the problem because i slide the lower assembly almost completely together and about 1/2 inch from being together it just won't movr in any further. Any suggestions ?

We replaced the water pump on a 1990 Evinrude 25 hp motor, but it isn't working. Can you help us?


It may look easy in the book but there are a few things that can go out. Such as the key/roll pin that drives the impeller can slip out on assembly. Water tube out of hole or damaged OR pieces of old impeller in it depending on why you needed to replace it. There are more but if you are not a trained tech it may be time to find one.

Coleman outboard overheating


You should change your impeller.
It is located at the top of the gearbox, around the vertical engine shaft.
First, disconnect the gear control. Underneath the steering bracket, you'll see a long nut with a counternut. ( Maybe you'll have to shift FWD or BWD to get better access ). Loosen the counternut 1/4 turn and then turn the long nut up ( 2 open box wrenches 10mm ).
Then remove the 4 bolts holding from lower to upper the gearcase ( just above the anti-cavitation plate )
The gearbox should drop down easily.
Then remove the 4 screws of the waterpump ( top of gearcase, around the long vertical shaft ). Lift the waterpupp housing, you'll get the impeller.
To reassemble the waterpump, grease the cup in the housing with PTFE or silicone grease, and while pushing the housing down over the impeller, rotate the shaft clockwise.
Reassemble all the rest in reverse order.
Check and adjust the gear shifting...

Im looking for a workshop manual for a 1995 Honda 90 HP outboard motor any ideas Im working on the gearbox at present


We bought the Clymer Honda outboard shop manual (B757) which covers Honda 2-130 HP from 1979 to 1999.
It was $20 and worth every penny.

Hope this is helpful.

Water circulation (coolant) thru outboard motor


Common problem is the thermostats staying closed. If i remember correctly they should be replaced every year. Water should be spitting out on the upper part of the shaft. Good luck on that fishin'

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.
