I just bought a boat with a chevy 565 and bmax outdrive
my question is I have a billet raw water pump belt driven by the motor do I also have a water impeller in the lower unit of the outdrive do they work together or since I have the belt driven pump you don't use the water impeller anymore thanks for the help
im about to rebuild the motor cause I had a head gasket fail and just want to freshen it up they say you can pull the outdrive in like 15mins problem is I don't see the six bolts like regular mercs have do you know their location by chance also is the oil drian plug behind the prop cause I don't see it thanks
Yes pull the prop and oil plug is behind it. Not trying to insult you but when you fill with oil fill from the bottom or the drain pug hole. You also want to remove the plug in the upper case housing. Mine takes just shy of 4 qts . It will take about 3 for it to come out the top plug then install plug and keep filling until you see it in you drive oil resovoir.. Yes it has the 6 bolts it uses a merc gimbal.. The top cap on mine has hydraulic arm mounts and needs to be removed to access the bolts or studs.
