Re: Raw Water Valve/Impeller Confusion

Sorry to bring back an old thread, but there has been some progress. New oil, plugs, gas (87 octane- couldn't get the non-ethanol this time!), and racor filter. Now that the choke is free, it fired up and ran pretty well. Sounded GOOD, and no signs of smoke. Pumped 5 gallons of water in less than a minute. Took forever to find neutral, though. THE ONLY possible weird thing I can find so far- the prop shaft is LOUD when it turns. It sounds like a tires making a tight turn in a parking garage, if that makes any sense. Wiggled the prop, and there is very little play.The shaft even makes noise while turning it manually. Will this noise subside when I splash it? It doesnt seem to be coming from the back of the engine, more like from the stuffing box or cutlass bearing. I hope this isn't bad- hoping to splash this week!

Re: Raw Water Valve/Impeller Confusion

Stuffing box is dry.. you should notice an improvement in the water after a while. In the meantime I'd not run it that way any more.

Re: Raw Water Valve/Impeller Confusion

The rubber cutlass bearing MUST BE WET

Its the one outside the boat that supports the prop shaft

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
