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.

    I don't know how that engine is plumbed. It may be off the stat output or off the top of the block. Apparently something has dislodged and clogged the hose. I would trace it back to the block and disconnect it there in determining if the hose is clogged or you are having problems with your water pump, or there is some crud in your bock clogging it, or your water tube and pump interface is no longer intact.

    HTH,

      I am wondering why I am not getting a hot buzzer alarm. I took off all the hoses connected and made sure they were clear. No water coming out.

        Robin;

        What was the condition of the impeller which you removed? Were there any vanes or pieces missing from it? I have looked through your previous posts and nowehere do you mention the year or s/n. Do you have those?

          Gerry it is 150 Hp Mercury Nitro EFI the serial number is OGO77344 the impeller was worn but no vanes missing. Looks like maybe some small chips. The metal housing the impeller was in was worn out. He replaced all that and it was pissing fin but I still had a oil buzzer alarm. Had another mechanic check out all the alarms on the alarm module. I had a cracked oil reservoir cap.no more buzzer but when I start the motor with the hose connection it will not piss. I thought maybe then thermostats were not opening so I replaced them. Still no pissing. So I took them out and still not pissing. I disconnected all the hoses and made sure there were no clogged lines. None were clogged but I did not check the hole that the lower hose came off of. Not sure if something is lodged in there. Still no pissing not sure what to heck next. Thanks Gerry

              Re the one hose you haven't checked, get a piece of lawn trimmer line and shove it up that hose as far as you can or completely remove the line and make sure it is clean. You would not believe what mud daubers can pack in there and plug it completely. That is the easiest to do before you have to start looking inside.

                Just an FYI, that serial number you posted is for a 175XRI not a 150. Check the powerhead on the starboard side for a core plug with the serial number stamped in it, and see if it says the same thing as the one on the tilt bracket.

                  Check your intake screens. When you put the lower unit back up, did the tubes line up and the neoprene connector seat and fit tightly ? Sounds like you may have to drop the lower unit and go back over your work. Did the impeller go in ok - could the blades have been bent in the wrong direction, then snapped off - plugging up the works? How about that tiny little key on the shaft that holds the impeller - I've had to hold them in place with a daub of thick grease while I fit the impeller over it ?

                    Don I will check. That is the number that was on the tittle when I bought it. But I will check the numbers and make sure they match. That could cause a problem ordering parts. I have ordered some parts already and they didn't tell that the numbers were for a 175 and they asked me what hp my motor was.

                      Quick tach I feel comfortable that he put it back on right. I was right there. But that is a good point. I think maybe the screens. The mechanic that checked my wiring said bigger motors sometimes don't get enough water with the muffs. The mechanic did other impeller back in the right way and lubed it. I kind of agree with on the screens.

                          Don I checked again and my s/n is OG077334 not OGO77344 it looks like the OGO is OG and a zero not a O.

                            In my post #12, I did correct your s/n to a 0 instead of an O and that s/n is indeed a 175XR1.

                              Sometimes its tha "Nitro" part that screws things up. They did some strange things when they went ta bed with factory rigged Nitro badges. ie: 200 hp XR6 Nitro!............
