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.

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 lol

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

If that includes the price of the impeller its a goos deal-it would be neat if he would walk you though it so you could do it yourself next time.

i threw some weed-eater line into the pee hole and reemed it out, then started it and it pee'd fine so it is not a water pump or impeller, thanks all for the help and suggestions...

Sometimes wasps or other insects build nests inside along the path the cooling water circulates.

You're not kidding Hawk! I once had to flush a spider outa there.

You and your motor must be very close indeed!:D
