boat motor question

3 posts in this topic

I have an inboard. My problem is after winter i started it up in the driveway with hose. I don't remember water cuming out of the cover behind the upper gearcase. I have the book and the water intake pump inlet is there i pulled it off and replaced the impeller its a liitle rubber spindle. I guess my qustion is does anybody own or know about inboards that could help me out one guy i talked to at a bait shop said he thought i had a clog and i need to backwash it i don't know how to do that.

I am asking here because of the cost to take it in is outrageous. Its bad enough the gas it now cost for truck and boat.

Thanks for any help.

I've had some luck blowing compressed air up into the small outlet hole on the shaft. If you pick up some mud or gunk it can block that and if it sits and gets hard it won't come out. A good shot with a compressor may be all you need.

The other thing make be that the impeller was either put in wrong or is stuck. When I did it I put a little bit of vaseline on it to keep it lubed.

      Planning on bringing out the new boat this weekend, I will do my best at the launch to speed up process, but hopefully some slack is cut on account it is a new boat..brand new boat.

      If the weather cooperates BC and I are planning on getting out on the North Shore this weekend.   With Mcquade and Two Harbors the only options I'm sure things will be tight till the Bay opens up and the South Shore a shorter run.  Be efficient and patient at the landings.  I lot of you know this but I'll repeat, when trolling in a congested area troll with the flow.  We'll be anywhere from on top to 20" down, just have to see what happens.  Lets see how many pink sticks I can manage to lose in one day.

      Definitely one you must of caught early; probably about the time I asked you if you wanted some sunscreen. Nice fish, but man did you pay the price. Good luck with your sunburn man.
