Could I get the serial number to confirm the engine?Your tell tale hose that goes to the bottom cowl, pull it off at the block fitting, make sure it is open, start the engine and see if you get any water. Don't run for more than a minute.Did you make sure the water pump tube indexed properly in the water tube in the midsection?
