      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

New impeller, still no stream

Recommended Posts

I've got a 7.5 HP Merc. Not sure of year,Mid 80's I think. Serial #7208663 for what its worth.

After sitting for 6 years or so, it fired right up, but no water from pee hole. I replaced the impeller, but still no stream. I can push high pressure water through the flush hole and get some to exit the pee hole.

Is there a thermostat on these things that may be stuck?

This is my last resort before taking it in.

Thanks for any info

Jeff

Jeff,

Not sure if this helps much, but my mid 90's 9.9 has a thermostat on it and it doesn't pee until it starts to heat up a bit.

Thanks for the reply Paul. How long does it take to start pumping? I ran it for 2-3 minutes and still nothing. I'm a bit nervous to run it too long.

Depending on the water temp and the load.....3-4 minutes.

Is it installed properly? If it's put on backwards it will not turn correctly...also it has a little key that needs to be installed along with it.

I know these are stupid questions, but had to ask.

Yep, it's in right and the little key is in too. I guess I'll try it again tommorow and let it go a little longer.

Thanks again

Questions... Could the pee hole be clogged? Is the pee hole the smallest hole in the cooling system? I don't know.

But, my Johnson was not 'peeing' like it should, so I took the pee hole apart and found a small pebble where the water comes out plugging the output. On mine it just unscrews from the cowling.

(I hope that makes sense....my post sounds like I should see a urologist)!

There should be a small hose running from the block to the cowl for the pee hole. Disconnect that and see if water sprays out of that. I had the end of mine plug with sediment once and I had just replace my impeller too, kinda of an "AH SHOOT" feeling until I found the plugged hole.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Turns out, when I pulled the lower unit, the tube up to the powerhead came with. When I put things back up, the tube did'nt go back in the hole.

Things are fine now.

Man, I just cannot stop laughing at this...sorry for this reply but if you read your reply with a little humor it does not look good....talking about pee, holes, and Johnsons...grin.gif

..then you say yours "unscrews".... laugh.gif

Anyway I am glad you found the problem, the 3 things are a little tough to line up sometimes (water tube, driveshaft, and shift rod). laugh.gif
