    So I put my motors in the water a got the overheat alarm, the pee stream was working when we got under way. I returned to the dock and conected the hose to the rinse out connection, no water came out. I tried to put 200# leader up the pee hole and put the water to it again!!!!!! No water any Ideas guys????

    Thermostat perhaps. Or you sucked some crud up in there. Did you try to blow thru the flusher hose?

    FWIW, I have never seen water come out the pisser when I use the flush port on my Yamaha F90, even with hose pressure well over 100 psi. But the stream is just fine on muffs and in the water.

    My Baja neighbor has a 90 on his panga. Started it up on hose and no piss water. I told him to stick a nail in it to clear it. Still same problem. I suspected a spider nest. So told my other naive neighbor with some pretty good lungs to suck real hard. He ended up with the goop in his mouth! Priceless. That has always been my experience...something stuck in the tube. If you can't blow air in it it is clogged. Just have to suck harder!

    Try blowing compressed air up the pee hole. However, note that a plugged pee hole will not cause the engine to overheat. If you still can't get water to come out the pee hole, there is probably something wrong with the impellers. BTW, don't use the rectangular ear muffs, use the round ones - they make a better seal. If you have water flow and the engine still overheats, then you need to inspect the thermostats. There are 2 thermostats, one on the top of each head.

    Figured it out>>>> Ok the water pump has a rubber fitting that goes over the tube that feeds water to the motor. That rubber piece was pushed up from the water pump pressure and that was my problem. I took apart the lower end and bamb all done.
