Pt.2 Yamaha F250 Outboard Water Pump Impeller Replacement At D-Ray's Shop




What do you think about this video?

bbulliard: Really great video! I thoroughly enjoyed and was well educated. I completed my very first impeller/water pump replacement by using your video and saved quite a bit of money. only thing I had trouble with was.... I was not able to re-mount the lower unit to the engine for 1 of two or possibly both reasons... reason 1). I did not seat the impeller fully enough causing it to bind and the shaft did not turn at all. reason 2). there is a metal 'cap' gasket that must be fully seated on top of the plastic gasket (which in turn sits on top of 3 metal o rings and finally the impeller). I did not fully seat and the shaft would not turn. Because of either reason 1 or 2 or both, when I tried to push the shaft into the engine mounting hole, i had a 4 inch clearance. I think this was due to the shaft being unable to turn. after I fixed the above, it seated just fine. I ran the motor with the ears on and the water poured out the pee hole like a fountain. again, thank you for such a fantastic video. I enjoyed the video as well as the experience of installing the impeller on my own. I do note that the old impeller was 2 years old and looked like the new impeller so I could've gotten at least 3-4 years out of the old one. any idea on how often to change the impeller? thank you so much for your great video!! Bob

bbulliard: do you have any on rebuilding carb on yamaha 150 2 stroke?

James M: Awesome video, I watched it every step of the way... Thank you D-Ray!

K Rymes: Great Video sir....would the same technic apply to a yamaha 150 two stroke ?

Capt. Dave Sipler: oh thats ez when the boats 8 feet in the air

curt carlisle: Thanks, Great video! I appreciate these videos from an experienced mechanic as I try to do this stuff myself.

Rene Vega: D-Ray a quick tip you might want to look over. My mechanic used liquid soap instead of grease to install the impeller in the housing. Thanks for the video, now I can do this my self!

Josh Martin: Hey buddy I got a few questions for you if you have any free time. I live in Jax florida and I have a flats boat. I was fishing a flat and the entrance to the flat is more shallow than the flat.Its like a bowl. I went to leave and got stuck. Well I plowed the field for a few seconds and filled my WHOLE engine with fine shell. It runs great but its getting no flow whatsoever. If you can call me that would be awesome. Theres a big tournament in two weeks and I gotta get ready. Josh 9046138788 we are up late. Thanks buddy.

MrDogeye: Great video, watched all your outboard service vids saved me heaps on servicing costs, i just noticed you running earmuffs then later you had hose attachment hooked up and water coming out telltale, i cant get water out of mine with the muffs on wonder if this a common thing

Dan M: When u drop the Lower Unit scribe the shaft to the top of the water pump housing, makes it much easier getting the spline back in. I use blue rtv on the WP bolt threads, they can't seize. Thanks for the video.

Beverly Parks: Va para mexico ......

ADRIAN GARZA: WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO SHOOT A VIDEO YAMAHA F200 OR F250,CHANGING GASS FILTER FROM VST TANK LITTLE MORE COMPLEX WOULD BE NICE!!!

manuel de jesus nieto garcia: esea forma de colocar el impulsor de agua flojo en el eje largo no parece muy confiable

537VIK: d-ray great video keep up the good work!! ??? for you?? i got a 1985 60hp johnson j60elcod, would this motor be hard to switch out the water pump on or is this a coomon job like your yamaha?

robert shaw: Thanks D-Ray youre a great mechanic and a money saver !

jcarrcpa: Great video! thanks for the tips. Can you tell me how long this normally takes from beginning to end? Is it worth the $320 the marina charges? Can't imagine why it costs so much when it looks like you did it in under an hour

XsamwiseX45: thanks for the tip of the cursed dirt dauber

Vincent Cheng: Thanks a lot really helped my dad! :):):):)

verticalift: Thanks for posting your F250 videos. Last July I bought a Grady-White 225 with an F250 in Singapore. The boat's now at it's new home in Phuket Thailand. Watching the local Thai mechanics service my engine in Phuket 2 weeks ago & then finding your videos online, I know that I'll now be doing my own maintenance. Question: Have you thought about doing a video covering long lay-ups (2 mo +) in the Tropics and Fogging the F250..? Again, many thanks. Good job. Ian Mitchell verticalift@gmail.com

Warren Schott: Great illustration; I have a 04' F225 4 Stroke; I assume the same procedure; I have a gasket in my rebuild kit not just the impeller; do you have to use gasket sealant on the gasket? If so, what kind do you recommend? Thanks again!!!!

AnAmericanSon: Great video. Very informative. I'll be doing the water pump on my VZ200 this week.

Zachary Meiling: Fantastic video, it saved me 200 bucks.

mrgetrealpeople: I have a yamaha 150 four stroke is the water pump replacement the same ?

Reggie Ralph: Nice job,I will keep this video for when i need to change it on my F115. Thanks

jukes231: does this model not have a spacer, Yamaha part # 61a-45538-00?

russ77guitarboy: Would I find the same pump location and use the same method on a early 60's 50HP Thunderbolt Merc?

dennis stallings: Well done !!!!

M.D. Edwards: Great Video!.. Very thorough. Thanks for taking the time to share your know how.

flavio siciliano: Thanks for the lesson old man ! Nxt time when u recording in the garage use a separate mike (not the camera's one) & keep it closer to the mouth . tks again Flavio

Donald Smith: Thanks! I've yet to do a 225hpdi, but almost all of the larger late model Yamaha outboard lower units are similar to this.

Jose Robles: thanks for the videoit help me a lot since im on my first boat really help

briangrandlake: Is this the same procedure for the 3.3 HPDI outboards as well?

TravisVision: How did you clear out the mud from the cooling system?

Donald Smith: @skiffangler I prefer using yamaha marine grease, but for the water pump impeller since it is only for initial start up, just about any grease will do, just use it sparingly. The yamaha marine grease is packaged in 1lb tubs or tubes for grease gun application. Thanks for watchin'!

sfrrob: Going to tackle this and a full service on my '05 f200. Your videos are excellent, thanks for taking the time making them! Just subscribed as well. Cheers from down under!

superdonyoungy: Thanks for taking the time to make this video!!!!!!!!!

Donald Smith: @Michaelalee1970 I always have them in neutral. Thanks for askin' !

Trinh Tu: Finished the job today. Works great, hasn't blown up yet. Can you do a video for Yamaha oil change? Thanks again!

jbowden2004: you have the best commentary and explanations on your videos. the best ive watched on youtube

laflur6: I have a 2008 Yamaha Vmax HPDI series 2 250. Would changing my water pump be any different? Great insight keep up the good work.

woden20: Nice video makes a change from the 1000's of oil change videos.

skiffangler: what brand of grease did you use/suggest for this along with general O ring and marine applications?

Trinh Tu: Thank you so much for making this video. So helpful, now i can spend that money on bait!

wcscully: These tutorials are soooo helpful! Thank you sooo much. My confidence with my water pump replacement just went up, big time! Thanks D-Ray and Merry Christmas.

Donald Smith: Good eye! My muff wouldn't seal to this lower unit very well, and after I cleared the little squirt jet, it didn't put out water as it would when the lower unit was in the water. So for demonstration purposes, I had it hooked to the flush connector without the motor running, and dubbed in the engine sound from a previous clip. Thanks for watchin'!

drla02: You, sir, are one of the "Good ole boys"! And I mean that with the best of compliments! I'm a DIY and your tutorial vid is, hands-down, the best out there on youtube! Many thanks & props to you for doing boaters like me a huge favor in giving & sharing a great lesson on how to do self maintenance on boats! Peace to you. :)

Alex Walker: Great video on water pump replacement. I was wondering if you had a video on how to fog a Yamaha 225 4 stroke? Thanks very much!

Stewart Turner: Dude, good video, was pretty helpful!!!!!!

Donald Smith: Thanks for watchin'! I have yet to do a vid on thermostats, The next time one comes in for that I will do a vid on that subject.

Donald Smith: I always have them in neutral, the splined shifter shaft is indexed so it will only go together in one way, so it is impossible to get them out of sync. Thanks for watchin' and have a goodun'!

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
