DO NOT run the motor while on the garden hose fitting. Just let the
water pressure do its job for 5-10 minutes. There should be water
coming from the indicator when flushing using the muffs. Also the
indicator should be relatively strong (at least as strong as any other
outboard) while running. On more than one occassion I've found an
obstruction in the pee hole. Most of the time it is an insect related
deal. Wasps, caterpillar, etc. I've always been able to clear it
with a piece of wire or similar thin tool. For some reason we've had
more of that sort of thing on this Yamaha than previous motors. Maybe
there is a larger tube or the bugs just find the ambience more
attractive. If that doesn't clear it have your dealer check it this
off season. In the meantime you have a overheat alarm, but I don't
that there is any problem more than an indicator issue. Good luck.
