    Default "Your problem is that you chan

    "Your problem is that you changed out the impeller and did not change out what wore out the impeller in the first place. Never replace the impeller without replacing the liner and wear plate in the water pump. Get a water pump kit which is available from any Nissan or Tohatsu dealer. Also, there are two Mercury four-stroke 15's presently being offered. One is made by Tohatsu and uses the same water pump as you. The other Mercury 15 is the retarded love child of the Yamaha/Mercury hybrid and is not compatible."
