Evinrude 25 no water out of exhaust.

I would start with inspecting the water pump. It could be the water is being restricted coming in. Pinched water tube grommet maybe?

edit:
I re-read your post. Since the tell tell stream is strong, I guess your problem could be somewhere else?

Re: Johnson 30hp Help

I would add a new water pump kit as preventive maintenance and peace of mind. You never know when it was last changed.

Re: Newbie Here

I had a wobble wheel trailer. That pic looks like the indentation where my boat sat on the roller.

Tracker All Welded Jon

I have the 2018 Tracker 1648AWL (tiller model). The max HP rating is 40 HP. Its a heavy duty boat as stated before. Deep and wide and a 20" transom.
Also came with a flat floor, front storage area and deck. My 30hp Suzuki is a good companion and pushes it well.
I like it a lot.

Newbie Here

Greetings from the city of lakes. Welcome aboard and enjoy your new rig. Thanks Jasper. I'm from west of the cities, but work in Minnetonka. I have been enjoying it already, but just need to button up the loose ends to make it less worrisome. Then I can decide what to do for making a front casting ...

Evinrude 30hp, another poor decision?

Against my better judgement, I took the motor out to the barge without thorough testing on the engine stand. In the water it fired up easily and had a little trouble with the idle. Then after a few revs it started to back fire every 20ish seconds. It would make a pssst sound, shudder and then smoot...

2019 Yamaha F25 making oil

I changed my oil a couple times during the break-in period for my new Suzuki in 2018. The oil level rose like you described after idling and some light throttle the first hour in a barrel. I would never do this again. Anyway, after running out on the lake, it was never a issue again. Happy boating!

2019 Yamaha F25 making oil

I give the oil at least an hour or so to settle before I check it, then I check again the next day. I also make sure the motor is in the same position (motor tilt and trailer height) each time I check it. This past week the lake was very calm and not many boats were out. I took advantage of it and ...

'93 25HP J25RETS

Thanks, just bought the boat a week ago. All boat ramps in the state are closed and could not sea trial. The PO would not let me come to his house. Ran the engine for about 30 seconds dry in a parking lot before exchanging any money. Got it home and it ran Ok on muffs. The Sync & Link seems to be t...

'93 25HP J25RETS

New project and just got the shop manual. The first maintenance procedure is to adjust sync & link. First operation is setting cam follower pickup point. Not only was my follower not touch the the cam, the hash marks are behind the follower by about 1". Looks like the cable has to be tightened to a...
