Question on a 1968 18hp fastwin. This boat and motor belongs to some else and it has been in storage for 3 or 4 years now so I thought I might as wellmake it run and use it. PROBLEM I THINK is- while running the engine with the foot in a 35 gallion barrel of water, I get NO WATER OUTPUT out of the water hole about 1/2 the way up on the very back of the leg. I have removed the thermostat and still NO WATER. When I opened the thermostat cavity the last time the hole was as dry as a popcorn f-rt. I suspect the water pump impeller to be the faulty piece here as water will travel the whole cooling syatem and exit with a pressure washer to the water intake hole with the thermostat out. YOUR THOUGHTS PLEASE !! Thank You for your time and knowledge. John
