    Default Tell tale ??

    Today I noticed that hardly any water was coming from my tell tale. Usually the stream is strong and a lot , not so much now. I had complete water pump job done by Honda mechanic at the end of last season. What causes this and how do I troubleshoot.

    Thanks much

    Did you run the engine on a hose recently?

    Pull the pisser hose off the nipple and clean out the dirt/sand.

    Ditto. And make sure the hose is supple and not kinked.

    There is a slight chance it could have sediment in the VST cooler as well.

    The pisser hose was actually off the nipple. Is there supposed to be a tension clap there ? Because when I put it back on it seems to pull off pretty easy. Water coming out great though when I put it back on. Thanks showing me where to look

    You can use a wire tie.
