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 elseís 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 itís posted at the end of someone elseís 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.

  • Water pump assembly - 77' 70 HP Evinrude

    1977 70 HP Evinrude.

    Still waiting for a stupid manual but of course I have all the parts I need NOW.

    Installing water pump kit w/housing.

    Question is, on the old housing there was no gasket under the water pump housing plate nor above it. Simply the plate and the housing were bolted directly on top of one another (not sure if that was the correct way in the first place but whatever).

    Received new water pump kit (genuine not aftermarket) and notice this kit has not only a plate gasket, but also a o-ring which fits inside the bottom of the housing.

    OK no problem, o-ring goes under the housing fine, but where does this gasket go? Under the plate? Above the plate? If it goes above the plate then that o-ring from the bottom of the housing would be in contact with the gasket.. That don't sound right...

    From the bottom up is it:

    Plate gasket
    Water pump plate
    Housing o-ring
    Housing
    ??????????????????????

    Or?????

    Where does OMC sealer come into play with all these gaskets and o-rings? Seems like it would not be needed...

    Any help would be great. I know these type of questions are redundant.

    This is the kit I have:

    OK, i doctored the picture. the gasket that fits the base plate goes under the plate, the round disc is goes into the housing then the outer ring. they are indexed to fit correctly. then insert the impeller, with the vanes lean the correct way, then use some sealer very lightly to hold the thin spagetti seal in the groove on the bottom of the housing. now slide the hole unit down over the shaft. the large round (pink) goes down the shaft to seal the shaft. the small o ring(yellow) goes in the groove on the shaft just under the splines. the white goes into the water tube fitting. hope this helps. it's the same for 99% of OMC water pumps. clik on the picture to enlarge and see the editing.
