Hi John, my name is Jason.
I read everything you wrote. Has the water pump been re-checked by a certified Yamaha technician yet?
Okay. If you were to go and start it right now what would happen?
Does it over heat as well as not peeing? Or does it run a normal 160F or so?
Okay if it's overheating and not pumping water the impeller needs to be checked again. Not just the impeller, but also BOTH orings on the water pump. If either oring is leaking or pinched, the impeller will suck air in instead of pumping water up. Was your impeller done by a certified Yamaha mechanic or somebody else?
That firs line should have said "if its overheating and not pumping water"
Either way, people/mechanics make mistakes all of the time. The problem is going to be something wrong with the installation of the water pump assembly. I can't tell you exactly what the issue is, but common issues would include but not be limited to the impellers vanes being installed in the wrong direction, somebody forgot the key that locks the impeller to the drive shaft, the pump housing is cracked, one of the two orings slipped out of place, (happens all the time) warped base plate, somebody forgot the metal locking collar (happens al the time as well) . The lower unit needs to come back off and the installation of the pump needs to be gone through again. That's what needs to be done. Did you have any further questions for me on the issue?
I don't know how you want to leave this but that is where you stand on your end and what needs to be checked. I think that should do it but I work for tips so I do want to make sure you are happy with my service before you go. If you had a further question on the issue by all means feel free to ask. If not, Just in case you do not understand the way the website works (and some folks do not). You do have to put forth a positive rating in order for it to credit me for helping you. When ratings are not done, the website simply keeps your deposit and they will not credit me. The ratings box is located at the top of the screen. To rate, you must select the star you wish and also confirm it. Please let me know if you run into any problems or errors when trying to do it. If you do have a problem, or if you can not see the ratings box which is at the top of the screen. Please reply back "I rate Jason's service _______" and fill in the blank.
Questions do not close out, so if you have to come back later on with follow up questions to the issue you still can even after doing a rating.
Hi John, just checking in. No rating has been put through for me yet, Did you have any further questions on the issue?
