water leak

I've got an E-Tec 115 HO, I changed the water pump because the temp warning light and horn went off and the water 

pressure was lower than normal. I ran the engine in the water and pressure is better, 7-8 psi at idle and goes up 30 psi at 

2500 rpm. When the engine is reved up water is leaking from under the front of the engine. I took off the side cover

and it looks like its coming fron between the exhaust  housing and the engine but cant really tell. Where could it be 

leaking at?

Re: water leak

Did you install an impeller or the whole factory water pump kit? What was the part number?

Re: water leak

It is always best to install the whole kit as you get every needed gasket and o-ring plus moly-lube for the driveshaft splines and instructions.

Re: water leak

So you think its leaking around the impeller housing and going up the exhaust housing?

There are seals and orings along with the gaskets that are included with the kit along with the new parts to do the job correctly. Be sure to use the engine model number when ordering the parts.
