Raw Water Cooling - No Water Coming Out

Hi all, it has been a while since I posted, but I have been very busy fixing up Sundance. My latest venture involves the cooling system. It emitted very little water out the exhaust port before my intervention. Today I cleaned the sea water filter and changed the impeller on my water pump. I also used some rigid cable to ream out some cooling lines to insure that there were no restrictions. Well I must have knocked something loose which then lodged somewhere else because I now get NO water out of my exhaust. Believe me, I disassembled the water pump several times to insure that it was put together correctly and that it was pumping water - yes on both counts. I disconnected various water hoses and used a air pump for my inflatable to see if they were clear. All were clear except the one leading to the wet exhaust nipple. So, water goes in but does not come out the exhaust. Help! I am tired and could use some advice. BTW, I am very mechanical, just a bit stumped here .

Thanks, montenido
