    Default 1997 Force 120hp Outboard possible water leak?

    I replaced the Impeller on my 120 HP Force motor and it is releasing water out of the tell tale fine. The motor is also running well. I just noticed with the ear muffs on in the driveway it appears to be leaking from what I believe engages the propeller in the front of the lower unit. I am trying to upload a picture but having a little trouble. Thanks in advance for any advise.

    Welcome.

    How much water?

    Water coming from the shift shaft area?? could be that the seal on top of the pump is bad, the connector is missing, the seal at the top of the pickup tube under the power head is bad?

    When I put it in the lake it ran fine with no problems. Didnt overheat and had good output through the tell tale. I may go ahead and order new seals and pull the lower unit back off. I just didnt know if this is a big problem or not. Will it damage anything?

    They are designed to pump a lot more water than they really need.
    So no damage.

    Just make sure the overheat alarm works.
