Hi all, just bought my first outboard. It's an old (1983) DT50. It came on the boat and starts and runs fine. I haven't put it into the water yet but have run it with muffs on. I am not getting any water from the telltale although this appears to be clear, I have blown compressed air through it and it comes out the from the prop area fine.
I am thinking I may have to strip the water pump. I have the manual which only covers completely stripping the transmission. Do I need to strip everything or can I just drop the leg off to gain access to the pump?
Go easy with me fellas, this is my first!

you should be able to just remove the lower unit
