    Look on the right rear corner of the housing and it should have a tell tell there. Take you a small piece of wire and run up into it to clean all the dirt out of it. Those bugs and daubers love that thing.

    You can run it on the muffs okay but you can get a better feel of the strength of the stream if the lower unit is surmerged.
    Gotta love those old thunderbolts. Got a 50 h/p myself.
