    Default Need some Help!!!

    I put my boat in the water and start the engine, but no water gets to the engine or comes out of the pump. so i cant even get the damn thing off the trailer, and have to shut it down b4 its over-heats. I think its air trapped in the pump or bowl. Is there a valve of some kind I could put or drill into the bowl to let the air out??? any other ideas??? Also, when I hook it up to the hose at home everything works just fine. So nothing is blocked or stopped up.

    Thanks for the help

    there is a small bleeder valve that goes on top of the bol i think there about 50 bucks or back the trailer in the water with the reverse gate up if this doesnt help you have other problems

    if it has a droop deff. put a bleeder on the bowl and when backing it in keep the reverse gate open with the nozzle straight when you fire the motor up let it idle in forward for a few sec.

    May need to push the boat off the trailer to get it level for the air lock to release also. When you fire it up it should get the air out of the pump, but the valve works quicker.
