New Mercury 40 4stk

I bought a new motor over the weekend and hooked it up to a garden hose when I got home. The water stream from the pee hole comes out as a fan shaped spray instead of a tube shaped stream like my old motor. Is this normal? If not how big of a problem do I have?

Whaaat? fan shaped, do you mean like a cone ?

If so try to blow some air into it or use something to clear up the hose

I have 40 four stroke Merc that has a normal stream out of the pisser. It is three years old. The first year of the injected four stokes.

It almost sounds like you have a female motor. Does it have to be trimmed all the way down to pass water?

It kind of reminds me of my old college roommate after a night out. Not a dry spot within 3 feet of the bowl.

      Made it out to North Center today by sunken island. Not very good, one perch. Marking them just not committing. Lots of water on ice, but ice is fine. 17 inches.    As far as north access, off Nelson road on east side there is an access. Put money in the box and don't be a Richard, I believe it is owned by a farmer and let's people use

      Lake St Clair is a blast. If you hit vermilion at the right time it will be right up there with that. No reason you can't have a 100 fish day with a good chance at many big fish. Going by my phone pictures I had a great day on June 17 a few years back ha. Theres no shortage of rocky shorelines and docks. I'm a fan of tubes myself but I know guys love their senkos.    I'm sure you'll get some more specific responses. Wish I had more time to chase them myself
