Hey guys, I'm fixing up a 1971 Merc 40hp for my brother's fishing boat and I just got done putting lower unit with a new water pump on it and ran it, question is...around the head and cylinders it's cool, like not even hot hot, I can hold my hands on it while it is running. is that too cold for the motor? Also, when she's running there is now water coming out of the teletale hole to see if it's pumping. Would it be clogged up or something?
