    Hmmm... I'm not quite sure, but I don't think that's the problem.

    Default Peeing

    Guess if you replace the impeller you'll be good to go. Be sure to run a wire up the pee tube, good luck.

    Yeah. I think an impeller change might be in order. When I opened it up there were rubber chunks everywhere. I collected as much as I could (there was a lot!), and attempted to flush out any bits that may have gotten into the motor. I don't think any rubber actually got up in the motor though. It seems to have been a quick catastrophic failure when the motor was first started after sitting for a few years.

    So, who knows a good place to get Honda parts?

    Default Ouch Honda gave me this hint!

    Only takes a couple seconds or two to burn up pump. Make sure the little case is not spun, there is a housing so to speak that this rides in, it could spin, mine did. Honda says to blow air back up the pee hole to clear, and each year when I put it up I gave it a shot od WD-40 because of the small hose/tube you get with it, lubes the rubber a little and keeps bugs from making a nest.

    Did it get started without water running to it or was it just that old??

    Alaska Mining and Diving should be able to fix you up. You may need the entire housing unit though. If it heated up at all it can warp that housing.

    An impeller fix is a pretty easy job. About $30-$50 in parts and a couple hours of your time. I changed one on my old boat (big I\O) and it was pretty simple. I would imagine that little 9.9 would be even easier.

    Yeah, it was started, but it was shut down quickly when it wasn't pumping. And I know it's a pretty easy fix. I just gotta get the parts, but I don't want to make a run in to Los Anchorage to spend my $$ at AMDS. Anybody have a good online source for Honda parts?
