I had my lower unit seals done by a shop in my area. They also replaced the water pump. When I came to the yard we fired it up and water was coming out of the pee hole. Two days later I drop it in the river.. no water. Take it back to the shop. A couple days later they tell me the key for the impeller fell off. They used the old key on the new impeller. They put in a new key In the process of putting the lower unit back on they broke some sort of plastic fitting. Two days later after the part comes in they fix that. They fire it up and again no water from the pee hole. They blew air through the pee hose and the water jackets and it all seems clear. So now after goin back and forth and three weeks later I might not have the boat for this weekend. I wonder if the new key fell off and what could cause that?
The old pump was working just fine. What in the heck is goin on here? It's a water pump! Pretty simple thing.
