    im taking on water!

    Copious amounts of water! 04 rxp, rebuilt motor due to dropped valves, got it backed off into my pond this evening and able to run it for a few minutes until it over heated. I got it out of the water only to find I was bringing 3 gallons of pond with me. I wouldn't think it would leak that fast at the carbon seal but I could be wrong. Anywhere else I should look?

    If it overheated then you probably have a hose not connected somewhere.

    Are both the hoses under the exhaust manifold conected?

    I believe I got them all. Im wondering if I had an air bubble in the coolant system that hasnt worked through yet

    Sounds like you forgot to connect the exhaust cooling hose. That would explain the over temp, and the water in the hull. Was the over temp alarm exhaust, or engine?

    Press your set button 5 times to see if any codes are stored... if there are multiple, press the mode button to scroll through them.
