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.

      Thanks Kunzi, that's is exactly the type of feedback I am looking for.  I didn't now Batteries + carried them now.  I was in there a year or two ago and they said they had stopped carrying them due to quality issues.  They must have worked those out.  Please post what brand/model you bought and how your test goes.    Thanks!

      Love my munchkin. I have mine set up as a spear shack.    One thing i do I do wish is that it pulled better with my snowmobile. Works great behind the wheeler but if I need to use the snowmobile I have major issues. Need to have studs added to make it work in the future.
