Is water coming from here normal? NOPE-I'm screwed!

Recommended Posts

Started the motor today. Water is coming out of the cowling area on the left side. Nothing in the engine compartment. See picture. You can see water dripping from the plastic cover above the steering link straps left side.

Is there a hole there? Weird things can happen when you pressurize the system with a garden hose. Not good or bad just different.

I was always told not to run garden hose water on full when using the muffs. I use about 1/2 or less pressure. You can force water into areas of motor under pressure...i am not saying you damaged the motor...try using lower pressure and see if it stops.

Thanks for the replies. I'm going to take apart the lower cowling in the am and inspect it. Only way to know.

Not a mechanic but it could be coming from your thermostat. Gasket may be leaking has happened to me before good luck.

I'm screwed. Water shooting out from the gasket between power head and lower skeg assembly. See pictures. I forgot to lower motor in the fall, discovered I had left it tilted up in towing position halfway through winter. Motor starts right up and seems to idle like it always did though. Maybe it's just a gasket? My season is now over. Rebuilt transom last year now this. I have no idea how to separate power head from skeg. 175 HP EVINRUDE 1993. This Motor ran flawlessly. I am disgusted with myself. IMG_20200405_111812276.jpegIMG_20200405_112019699_HDR.jpeg

Gary, contact Roys Boys on here. He may be able to give you a sense of what your looking at. He’s an evinrude guy. I don’t think it’s a big deal personally. Always a bigger issue if your cracking open that block. This I don’t think so. But I’m being optimistic. Good thing is you found it now and not when your running down the lake wide open with a loud boom after the fact.

Yes sir, times a wasting! Glad I bought the seloc maintenance manual. Very helpful. Hopefully the Covid won't delay shipment of the gasket.
