In the process of water pump replacement on my 1975 85 horse Johnson. Motor has 2 copper supply lines for the water pump. I hooked a garden hose up to the intake line to check the flow and flush the motor and about half the water runs out of the cavity in the bottom of the motor and the rest comes out the return hose. Is this normal? Just looking for a second opinion before I pull the power head off.
