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.

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....

      Just looked at the harbor cam in canal park and looked like there was two guys out fishing from the pier. Now that the gates are open I would say that's what they were doing. Feel free to share any reports you have or would like to share. Good luck all!

      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.
