Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone else’s topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when it’s posted at the end of someone else’s topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • 1985 Honda 2hp

    Hi guys. I know that on this motor, the powerhead is aircooled and the exhaust is liquid cooled. My question is, does the motor have a water pump (impeller)? How is the exhaust cooled? Thanks!!

    For some reason my below 30 hp after market service manual doesn't list any Hondas.I wonder if your 2 may have been built by another company.
    If it doesn't have a pump then there will most likely be a scoop of some sort to chatch the prop wash to push the water up to the upper leg.If it has a pump there will most likely be a simple intake opening with some sort of a screen.

      Thanks Spike. I don't have my hands on the motor yet, (eBay) but here is a photo of the leg and the whole motor.



      I wondered if it may have a "scoop" type of intake, I'll check it out when I get it. You really think a company other than Honda made motors for them? What a dissapointment that would be. Thank you for the help, I'll let you know what I find.

        I think sometimes companies have other builders make parts and motors for what I'll call nitch motors.I just found out Merc supplied some gearcases for 75-90 hp.Hondas.
        I don't think it would be unusual for a company to contract with a small engine builder for a line that might not fly or that they plan to later build their own.
        Of course this is all conjecture.
        Anyway it appears there are intakes near the front above the gearcase my guess is it has a pump.The design looks a little like the Yamaha/Mariner leg.
        I wouldn't be surprised if some of those small motor legs were built by an independent supplier.

          I'm sure you're right, I'll pull it apart when I get it. It's supposed to come with the original factory manual so that'll tell the tale. I was just hoping to get the part ahead of time so I wouldn't have to wait. None of the marine stores in town show that a 2hp Honda even existed for that year, yet I know they did. It's funny, I was looking at a new Honda generator the other day and there were more briggs and stratton parts on this thing than Honda parts. Nowhere on it did it say B&S, it just had the B&S symbol all over it. Makes you wonder what you're really getting. Thanks again.

            Well, I've got the motor and it does indeed have an impeller for a water pump. It looks like it's in good shape so I'll give it a try. Still no one in town has a replacement! I wonder if it's the same as other outboard impellers. If I can find one that's the same diameter and has a cotter key the same size AND the same thickness, do you think that would be okay? Does the number of blades make a difference??
