The 2 stroke small HP Mercury outboards pick cooling water up through an opening underneath the anti-ventilation plate (sometimes incorrectly called the cavitation plate) just forward of the anode. There is a hose adapter, which has a single "muffler" and spring plate arrangement to hold the muffler over the cooling water inlet. The prop has to be removed to give clearance for the adapter.
