evinrude water pump issues

Recommended Posts

I put a new water pump kit in a 1995 evinrude 9.9 kicker motor   Now I do not get any water out of the water tube from the motor . The new kit was installed the same way the old kit was installed , I have also blew air thru the lower unit  were the water pump tubing fits in. There is no obstructions as air comes out the water tube from the motor.  Any one have any suggestions ? 

 

  Thank You

The impeller has to go in a certain way. You may want to check out this video. Look at 1:38 and see if your impeller is facing the same way

Keyway on shaft ? That would be the first thing I check. If you take it off apply small amount of lubricant around the impeller so if it's running dry it doesn't tear it up.How long did you run motor, sometimes it's takes an uncomfortable time for the water to come out.

If you are talking the stream coming from the upper end, that may be clogged with a bugs nest etc.  need to check with a wire.

I had my Rude water pee hole plugged last week with mud, insect nest. I always carry some hedge trimmer line to snake up in there.

2x on the keyway on the shaft. Even if you put in in backwards you should get some water.

maybe the copper tube came off on the upper end where it goes into the block.i have that happen to me before. i put the tube on first in the top and then put lower end back on you can line the tube before the final push to seat the lower end on. hope it helps.

Spiders often build stuff in the water output hole. I'd make sure that isn't it by reeming it out with a wire

Thank You too all you replied with information with my water pump issues. I believe I found the problem, after pulling water pump and checking over everything I noticed the new impeller is slightly larger and a little thicker than the old impeller. I am ordering a Johnson/Evinrude impeller , the new one was a sierra replacement . I will find out this week if that was the problem.

 

 Thank You Again Everyone

It still should have spun and produced water. Sierra is pretty decent stuff from all the parts I've bought. Maybe not a bad idea for piece of mind though, she's an important part !! Good luck, keep us posted.
