Put it in forward gear. Drop the lower off by releasing the bolts and nuts holding it holding the lower on. (one is hiding under the back pick up screen)- some models had a plug in the back top of the exhaust/intermediate housing hiding an allen head bolt pointing down.

Once released, put a protector in a vise and clamp the lower to the bench.

2 screws or bolts will hold the water pump cover on. (the drive shaft runs thru it) Clean the carbon and rust off the drive shaft will allow the pump housing and impeller off the lower. Retrieve the funny looking key drive which runs the pump.

Inspect the shaft, the lower unit oil for water. and find all the pieces of the water pump impeller which may have gone places they shouldn't have.- including the outlet tube from the power head. Check this by putting a tube on the end and blowing- you should hear and feel the pressure in the exhaust and tell tale hole.

Now take the model number , the old pump parts to the marina for a replacement. Do a side by side comparison at the marina so you get the right stuff. Check the inside drive of the rubber impeller and see if they are exactly the same.

NOW- put the new wear plate / gaskets and drive key on, hold in place with grease. Slide the impeller on the key and spin the drive in both directions to be sure it has the impeller and will securely turn it.

Put grease in the cup of the pump housing to prevent dry start and help seat the impeller blades. Spin the shaft as you lower the housing in the pump so the blades all face in the right direction (clockwise). Screw in the bolts. Grease up the seal the watertube goes in and the spline end of the drive shaft.

Up the hole it all goes, now you only have to spline the shifter (it hasn't moved has it?) The drive shaft and the water tube all at the same time.

Check the shifter for correct position and bolt it down

SOURCE: 80 hp mercury outboard starts and runs as long as you hold the key in the start possition. when you let the key go to the run possition it shuts off any help

Contacts in your ignition switch are corroded. Some can be cleaned but some just have to be replaced at times.

I have a mecury outboard motor ser# B169012 can anyone tell me what year and HP it is and any other info you might have thanx


You need to know the horsepower, as some of the B numbers are repeated on various engines. The HP should be on the serial number plate. HP is listed on the chart, and you can also tell the maximum HP which should be on a sticker on the boat itself. For instance my 16 foot Boston Whaler says Max HP is 60HP, so I would be looking for an HP designation on the label that may say 40, 45, 50, 55, or 60.
