Boobie is talking about the fitting under the cowl where the pee hose joins the engine; probably is an ell-shaped fitting. Good luck
Thanks Kim. I ran it for a while and kept checking the head temp. Didn't know about the six count thing so wasn't sure if it was getting too hot.
Do you mean where the hose connects to the lower unit? If so, I'll have to remove the lower unit to check it. Going to work my way to that after checking
also can I remove the fuel filter in the motor and install one in the fuel pipe from tank to motor ?
I purchased an old Mercury outboard motor and I can't identify. It's a 45 or 50hp ,4 cylinders ,2 strokes motor. The serial number is 9282545
