  1. Hi everyone, i am wondering if someone else has had this problem. I was running my boat over the weekend and the stb engine want to run warm during the trip (285-290 range/no alarm). I have checked the water inlets and the main water pump and all is good. Do you think it’s the circulation pump on the engine that may be causing the issue? And if so, can I change it with out pulling the boat? Thanks to all!
  2. Happy new year to you all! I hope 2017 brings you a great boating season! I'm also looking for advice, I just replaced my fresh water pump, it runs smooth and much quieter than the old one, but it keeps running while I'm running water. Shouldn't it pressurize and stop "humming"? thank you and again happy and safe new year. Chris
  3. Hello all, i'm wondering if there is a way to prime my water pump? Previous owner ran the water tank dry. I've filled the tank and when i turn it on at the panel i can hear the pump working but its not pulling water. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  4. Hey all, Looking to do some preventative maintenance this spring to my 2003 200ssi with a 5.0l mercruiser motor. I am wanting to replace the water pump because i'm not sure that the previous owner ever did so it could be potentially 16 years old. Does anyone know where I can find a part number for this impeller kit? I have found a manual that looks like the pump is located off the motor. I'm more familiar with outboard motors and those impellers are in the lower unit. Is there an impeller on the lower unit of the bravo drives? Also how do you tell what gen the alpha drive is? The manual I
  5. A quick DIY question... I'm going from an Alpha 1 Gen 1 into a Gen 2 outdrive. Since I don't know when the impeller was last changed, I got a repair kit and was surprised at how big the Gen 2 impeller was compared to the Gen 1. So that begs a couple questions... 1) Does the Gen 2 move more water through the engine because of its size? 2) Does the "every other year" rule of thumb still apply? Thanks guys!
  6. I have a 2010 Chaparral 284 Sunesta that has relatively low hours (less than 200). The boat is used during the NJ summer months, weekends only. Just got a preventative maintenance notice from the marine center that I am storing my boat at for the first time, so they are new to me. They are suggesting that the following work be done: 1. Replace the engine raw water pump impellers and gaskets 2. Install a new engine thermostat and gasket I checked my service records from my previous marine center and this work has not been done in the past. Before I spend close to on this work, I wanted to
  7. So after the last trip to the lake I decided the water pump has got to be bad. So I call the local shop went and picked up the parts and came home and start tearing everything down. Well at first I thought WOW this is really easy and it was going so fast, well then I got to start putting it back together and I notice I have quite a few more O-Rings then I seen come off and notice I have more gaskets then I could use. So Now im just confused, well then I notice the lower part of the pump is what I think is the wrong part. So have a look at the images below and let me know if im just over lookin
  8. I have a 2006 190 ssi with a 4.3GL-E volvo penta. A week ago I parked the boat at the shore and lowered my prop into the sand/mud a little to stabalize the boat while I got something on the shore. When I hopped back in I forgot that I had lowered the prop & cranked it & began to back up stirring up mud & small rocks. I got the boat out in the water & it ran fine. I didn't think anything else about it. The next day I took the boat out a few times without any problems. The last time I took it out it began to overheat. I wasn't out far so I loaded the boat & came home. I have
  9. I am considering replacing my water pump along with the impeller this season. I found there is a choice between a "plastic" housing and a metal housing. If you had to do this, which would you choose? My first thought was that the metal housing would be stronger, but then I wondered if I would have problems with corrosion, etc. What else should I replace since I will have it opened up anyway? Those with same outdrive as mine, if you have performed this maintenence recently, do you have info handy that you can provide? part numbers, online parts providers you use and trust, etc. Thanks in advan
