Re: Yamaha outboard no water through tell tail
I have had many outboards over the years. The only one I ever replaced an impeller on was a 35HP two stroke Evinrude which I had for 25 years with a lot of salt water use. About 2 years ago I replaced the impeller due to it heating only at very low trolling speeds. Have to admit that I ran it "dry" from time to time, just enough to make sure it would fire after sitting over the winter, shouldn't have done that. As mentioned earlier, suggest you leave the impeller as the last resort.
