help with Merc 3.9 outboard...

Hi gang...Elborba here, first post, so i hope i am doing it right.
I own a Catalina 22 from 1974, hull# 3066. I am in the middle of a major rebuild on this boat. (me and the missus call her "Wild On 3"). I recently purchased an Mercury 3.9,circa 1966ish. It runs pretty good, but there don't seem to be any pee stream coming out of it anywhere to indicate if it is getting any water circulation. Cant find any info on this motor. I was hoping one of you might have a little experience with this vintage? Any input would be much appreciated!
