Hi guys! I'm brand new to boating and just picked up a 1989 eliminator edge 244 with 150 hours on it. It has a 454 with a bravo 1 drive. This boat has been inactive for 5 years and I am trying to get it ready for the summer.
Now I hooked up dog ears to the drive and supplied water. I could not get any water through the motor though. I only ran it for 60 seconds. It also has belt driven sea pump that I noticed has a leak out the side of it ( I think it is split from not being drained right). So I figured the lower impeller was bad and the sea pump as well.
Now according to sterndrives the Bravo one does NOT have a impeller in the drive. Is this true?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
