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!!
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
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.
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
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
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
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'!
