Going from one problem to the next. Ok, so I think my motor is a 1996 instead of a 1995. Serial #OG561706. I was hoping someone could verify the year for me. Also, I replaced the water impeller in the lower unit and I cannot get a steady stream out the water port from the back of the motor. I tried a water hose and muffs as well as a garbage can full of water. There is only a trickle of water intermittently coming out. I cleared the upper rubber hose of debris and made sure the copper line is in place. Water pores out of the lower unit, out the drain holes as well as where the shifter comes out of the lower unit, but not much out the top. I did not use an entire water pump replacement kit as the remaining parts looked to be in ok condition. I also rotated the drive shaft clockwise during installation. Any thoughts on what might be the problem?
Thanks again for your responses!
