    Chris you do not have the impellers still installed, do you?

    Now to the overheat problem....is there water exiting the exhaust? Is there a sand trap installed?

    No or little water out exhaust means it's not making it thru the engine. Your jet unit is what pushes the water thru the engine hose pressure may not be enough.

    Sand trap plugged or flush valve open.

      How long did you run before it over heated..there is some kind of blocking in a hose or port some were.
      Do I give my friends advice? Jesus, no. They wouldn't take advice from me. Nobody should take advice from me. I haven't got a clue about anything..

        Thought about it more.....could be sand in the head cooling area. Pretty common problem on outboards.

            Sunday???? ***. Get that thing to Finger Lake ASAP. We got a river to run on Monday. Seriously, I'm sure we can figure it out when I get there Monday morning. That cooling system is just too simple. Can't be anything more than a little blockage somewhere.

                the garden hose hookup cools the motor through a different path than when the boat is in the water...go back it into the lake and turn it on while still on the trailer and see if it over heats....if something is plugged it won't take long at all.....it might just be a problem with the garden hose attachment and may be just fine when the boat is in the water...

                now I'm curious...sneak down to finger lake in the am and try it out...

                  You didn't run it up past idle did you? Merc is pretty specific about that, idle only with the hose hooked up. Just a mind jog just in case. My brain sputters and coughs often enough....

                      What time.....I may be able to be out that way for a little extra hand and help with the once over. I tried to swing by your place the other day but the kid has me swamped with this high school soccer stuff, 4 games a week is killer right now on any spare time.

                      On Edit: You know a place a little closer to home to just run it up on while on the trailer would be Lower Fire Lake or the Knik River as a thought.
