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 threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

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

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (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 thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread 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 thread.

5. By starting your own thread, 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 thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread 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 thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread 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 thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

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

  • No water out PEE hole when flushing yamaha F150- 4 stoke ??

    2004- Yamaha f150-4 stroke

    I can't get any water out the pee hole when flushing. I have a tried a single feed muff and a dual feed ear muff
    Water comes out just fine when in the water. New impeller also

    Does anyone know why this is?? Guess I'll have to get a big bucket??

    Doesn't that engine have a connector that will allow you to screw the water hose directly to the engine thus negating the need for the muffs? Is this boat new to you?

      It happens sometimes some people have tried wrapping bungee cords around for a tighter fit, do a search note do not run engine on direct hose connection.

        It does have a direct connect flush fitting, but you can't run the the motor when using it.

          I believe I have read some use both at the same time so they can run the motor

            what i do is to put tape around the water intake holes under the gravitation plate,take off the plastic screens on the water intake,prime the motor with the flush fitting,move the hose to the muffs.start the motor it should pee.

              After I repositioned the dual feed muffs and rapped a bungie cord around it. I was able to get about 70% discharge from the telltale hole. I thought their might be a better attachment than what I have rectangle rubber dual feed muffs (to much leakage), bungie strap helps....

              Thanks for the replies

                Sorry guys, I have been away for a few days but I have another question which pertains to this thread. I have owned 6 different Yamaha engines and have never been told that I cant run it while on the water connection hose. The local dealership mechanic did say that it was not necessary but never did he say not to. I have always run my engines for a couple of minutes when flushing the salt water out of them. The tattletale has increased pressure when I do it and I have never gotten an over heating alarm. Whats the deal?

                    If you are talking about the hose connection at the cowling then I would recommend you read your owners manual

                      Ditto, the owners manual warns against it.

                        It seems I was misinformed! Thanks for the input.
