    Willard, FuzzFace and I rebuilt the water pump on that new 70 I picked up a few weeks ago. Put it in the lake and after it warmed up, it only peed out of the starboard hole. Nothing out of the port side. We had the cowling off and Fuzzy kept his hand on the motor for about 10 minutes. It didn't heat up to any extent. Is it okay like this, or is something blocked. Checked the port hole for mud daubers and couldn't find any external blockage. Is this a point to worry about? We did see some exhaust smoke coming from both holes.

    Lawerance I wouldn't worry about it until it heats up. In the mean time I'll take a look at the circulation pattern and try to figure out whet could stop it from coming out both holes. Might try some air or water back up thru that hole to see if there is a dauber nest way up in it.
