"My 90HP Force outboard overheat alarm sounds after about 10 minutes at idle. Strong water stream from idle relief holes. Alarm goes off when I get under way. What do folks on the forum think? Thanks, Bill"

Haven't tried touching motor yet. Will do so the next time I crank engine. With our temps in the 40's today will not be the day. Thanks for tip. I'm also going to check the t'stat to be sure it's working properly. Bill
