Johnson 9.9 Seahorse tattle tell
I just finish performing maintenance on my outboard. Gearcase and points.
I've started and ran it for a while (in a garbage can). For the first time, I've notice that the water coming out of the tattle tell (pee hole) is warm. Not burning warm just a bit more than body temperature. I've never notice in the past if the water coming out was cold or warm. I've look in the service manual and didn't see anything on the water temperature coming out.
Anybody with a similar engine notice water temperature coming out? Is the impeller getting enough water to the engine block?
I did inspect the water impeller but it looked fine. It is a year old and never ran dry.
