Re: Water Pump

I do not know very much about outboards but its my guess that the water coming out should have been at least luke warm after only a minute or so of running especially if the flow is low. Can you pull the cover off the top of the engine and open a line to where the water is supposed to exit the engine so see if the flow made it that far? Is it possible that it is not reaching the engine at all? I think the salts should dissolve in fresh water over time if thats the problem. I will bet there is some solution that you can make up using household chemicals that would disolve the salt even faster. I think I read that you have to change the impeller alot more often in salty conditions maybe this one is shot.
