Hello my name is***** will be assisting you today.Can you run the engine on a hose and have the thermostat removed to check the water flow on the block?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
should there at anytime be exhaust coming out the tell tale pee hole
Expert:  Charles replied 2 years ago.
Ok, It sounds like you might have missed the water tube when the gear case was installed. You are going to need to remove the gear case and make sure that the tube is going into the water pump hosing. There should not be exhaust coming from that hole.

I don't think so but i'll check. could the powerhead be cracked
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
could the powerhead be cracked keeping water form coming up the tube
Expert:  Charles replied 2 years ago.
A cracked powerhead would allow water into the cylinders. If you had a grommet blown out at the top of the water tube, that can cause a loss of water. A broken water tube would do the same thing.
