I just changed the water pump on my 65 40 hp Johnson outboard. It does pump water, however it seems to be putting water out of the small hole in the housing beneath the water pump hole and the two small holes on the front side of the lower unit. I changed the water pump as pre maint. It did pump water before but I never noticed it pumping from the extra holes. The only thing I noticed when I was putting it together was the o ring on the upper part of the driveshaft is kind of crappy. Any ideas or is this normal? Thanks, Ken
