1976 Evinrude 35 Hp no pee hole?

I just bought a 1976 Evinrude 35 Hp, model 35652G, and water sprays out the 2 exhaust ports at the back but it doesn't seem to have a dedicated telltale (pee hole).  Is this the case for this engine or am I missing something?

 

Thanks for any advice,

 

Wayne

The parts listing mentions that not every one that year had an overflow indicator. Look at the lower part of the exhaust cover on the port side for a plastic elbow and a hose or a 1/8-NPT pipe plug fitting.  You may have one of the earlier production models that did not have that feature. You could always replace the exhaust cover if you really wanted an indicator.

Thanks.  It must not have an overflow indicator.  I don't see any thing.

If your engine had one, the overboard fitting would be located in the area behind the positive battery cable on the exhaust water cover

So, I found this on the starboard side which connect to a tube that reconnects to the engine at the center/front and near the bottom (can't get a picture of that).

Nope, not it.

 

Re-read my earlier posts where I explained it would be IF your engine was equipped with an overboard water tell-tale
