Chrysler 250 Question

Postby Ira Madsen » Mon Mar 21, 2016 8:34 pm

I'm working trying to revive a 1978 Chrysler Sailor 250. I took the lower unit off and replaced the impeller. Here's my question:

Does a water stream come out of the two holes in the lower part of the engine (above the lower unit)?

Most water cooled engines have a big stream (waverunners have a rooster tail!) so you can visibly check that your pump is pumping. When I tested the engine, I got exhaust from those two holes but no stream. I'm guessing this is where the cooling water exits, but I could be wrong.

Can anyone educate me?
