Re: 25hp Impeller destroyed

Just bought the motor on Friday from a guy...motor had less than 10 hrs on it...he bought it in March brand new 2012 model...water would not come out of flush port...called and spoke to someone at Evinrude and then a guy at a dealer and both said it wouldn't eunout on ear muffs or barrell that I had to run in a body of water...well guess what it st8ll didn't work...overheat sensor came on and shut me down...came home and called to lake sure warranty wouldn't be voided because turn around was about 4 weeks and dropped the lower unit to find that the impelled was just as round as a donut...the blades were all grinder up in the water pump housing and in the water outlet...unreal that a motor this new has already had to have a new impeller..replaced it myself. And runs like a top now.

Re: 25hp Impeller destroyed

good for you.That was a cheap fix and you have a great running motor on your hands.

 

If you did not get an owners manual with it, be sure to download one from http://www.operatorsguides.brp.com/

 

The gearcase has 2 small holes on each side underneath the anti-ventilation plate. They have to be temporarily taped up if you use a hose flusher on the gearcase while running the motor. If the holes are left open, they can suck air and cause the water pump impeller to run dry and damage the blades on it, just like you saw when you took it apart.
