01 merc 150 efi water discharge

2 posts in this topic

My dad has this motor, an 01 150 Merc efi. He accidentally put the motor down in the mud the other day and now at low speeds the water doesn't come out of the discharge at low speeds. At higher speeds there seems to be some water movement. He noticed a small plug right beside the discharge and we are wondering if that is some kind of flush point. The intakes seem to be ok, but I just thought that I would find out if anyone knows about that plug. Thanks guys.

setterguy...

I have a '01 merc 125 and had a blocked check valve once a couple years back. I just exposed the discharge and back-flushed with water. No problems since. Your motor will still run fine with a block check valve, but I'ts nice to know your pump is working correctly.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
