Latest News: Forums Technical Mercury Outboard Re: Re: Mercury Outboard


Hi Keith, yes a short piece of small bore hose exits lower right side and a stream of water did emerge, you can just see it in the photograph. I only ran it for a few seconds, mindful of the advice to get it looked at by a service bloke in case there was no oil in the gearbox or the impeller was trashed, the engine has apparently not been run for years. The intake hole is tiny, only maybe 3mm and easily missed on first inspection, which was why I wondered whether it was air cooled at first, now I know. Thanks for all the help and advice.

And I am glad I gave you all a few laughs about my flood, I didn’t have to share that…
