i found today when i was fishing that my motor was not pushing out water, it is a older merc. 7.5 does anyone have any ideas. thank you in advance
where can i get a book? could it be blocked? my cousin had one and he blew out the flush and it worked great, until he lost it in detroit lake this summer, due to not tightening the bolts to hold it on the transom lolbd2cool said:You mean there no water coming out of the exhaust?(no pee)
You need to change the impeller-with a good book it is a job that you can do yourself.
tySTURGEON FEAR said:Yes u can blow compressed air into to the intake down by the prop and u can take the hose off on the inside and blow out the line and the nozzle that the water comes out of if it just stopped completely chances are its blocked when the impeller goes it usually will trickle alittle but i would use a compresser and blow out all that first if that dont work then ur lookin at a new impeller there not to bad to change out
that video makes it look so simple, i am not the most mechanical...thanks for sharing that videoChromatose said:IF the compressed air doesn't work, then you might want to go a head and replace your impeller. Here is a u tube link. The motor shown is a bigger motor, but the impeller is the same for repair.
