My motor has been running loud as of late (no loss of power or sputtering just a little louder than usual). I hooked my motor up the garden hose and was running it to see if anything looked unusual. I noticed that there is a significant amount of water running out just above where the lower unit connects to the mid section, right where the steering shaft connects (to the mid section). The water is comming out on the port side only and only when I throttle up, no water at idle. I can not see any difference with the water discharge coming from the lower cowl, that looks fine. Is this normal or might I have a problem. If a problem, how urgent of a fix?
