Wayne, yes, by indicator I mean the stream of water indicating that
your water pump is working. Yes, there should be a stream when
running on muffs. I never ran far enough without a stream to find
out if speedometer stopped working but there is no connection
between the 2 that I am aware of. I currently have a Yam f225.
Go to the "" and do some research there. There are
a lot of folks with much more info than I. For what it is worth, I
don't think that you have a serious problem but you should get it
straightened out, at least, for your peace of mind. Good Luck

> Hey grandpa what motor do you have? when you say " indicator" do
you mean the pee hole, where the stream of water exits the motor?
Does Your motor pee when flushing with muffs while running motor?
Thanks for responding grandpa. Has any one else come across this
problem. P.S. grandpa have you had your speedometer stop working
from cloggs before?
