Default 1994 Oceanpro 225 Water Bubbling in Engine

Hi,

Like subject says - I have a 1994 OceanPro 225 outboard. Impeller was replaced about 10 hours ago, and plenty of water coming out discharge. I noticed a lot of dirty water come out of engine compartment from under cowling when I tilted motor up and end of day. Turns out I have a fairly significant amount of water kind of bubbling up in to the engine area when running, around the area of the shifting rod when engine is running.

Hoping somebody could help me out with with what migh cause this? Tried to attach short video to this post. thanks!!

Find out exactly where water is coming from. Bubbling up from around shift rod area could be exhaust gasses exiting where they shouldn’t be.
Should be no bubbling from foot at idle , just out the mid cowling ports.
Hard to tell without video , on a keyboard.
You may or not have a real problem .

Remove the cowling and run the engine on muffs (or while in the water) and see if you can identify the source of the water. Might have a bad hose on the engine somewhere (like where the flush hose attachment is).

If 55 and 21 were not replaced and sealed when foot was removed and reinstalled , you may have exhaust blowing in the leg , the paint will looked baked after a while like that.

Thanks everyone for the input so far! Sorry, it took me a bit to figure out video. Linked below is YouTube video of what I tried to describe. Water is actually coming up in to the engine compartment.


Any and all insight is much appreciated!

I am not a pro on this by any means , but looking at your video, #37 gasket may be blown out .
Don’t dive in on my advise . Just look at picture.

In my opinion, I suspect part #57 was left out. I suspect the water you are seeing coming up the shift shaft is splashing from the major turbulence under the pan.

You can prove my theory by taping up around the shift shaft to prevent water from entering from the bottom of the pan. Since you are going to do this at the dock, you can tape it up real well since you dont need to shift into gear and will remove it afterwards. That will prove if it is splashing up or coming from the adaptor plate gasket failed.

hmm I suspect 55 or 21 (most likely 21)

If 57 was left out...the motor would be super loud as that is the exhaust channel down to the LU

I say 21 because the top of the LU gets filled with water , not just the water pump's pickup tube (#27)...so some blowout of the exhaust would force some water up the midsection to where the shift shaft is poking through part #30.

thankfully part 21 and part 57 will be easy to verify once the boat is on a trailer.

Part 37 won't be so easy as you have to remove the powerhead.

a longer video ...really up close might help.....as with all video taken, most people pan too fast and don't stay on one section long enough....re-do the video and stay at the bubbling for way longer.

You need to remove the lower unit and inspect the exhaust housing, exhaust housing seals (upper &lower), inspect the water tube #27 for holes.
At 26 years old it is possible that the water tube may have developed a pinhole leak, also the upper and lower seals on the water tube grommet and exhaust housing could be worn or damaged.

This^ I use 3M Super Weatherstrip and Gasket Adhesive to hold the exhaust gaskets in place when putting the lower back on (also replaced them with new). If these gaskets shift out of place you will get exhaust pressure leaking up to the engine housing like the video.

BTW it looks like your solenoid's red lever is partially open...should be parallel to the solenoid ...pointing down to the base of the solenoid.

All good recommends , pull the foot and have a look at grommets on exhaust as well as the water tube.
#55 was blown off on mine when I did a water pump change.
It was due to corrosion on the catching groove for it. Cleaned it up and use the 3m weather stripping adhesive to hold it in place for reinstall with new grommet.
It was not loud and I don’t remember it bubbling , but it baked the paint on the lower housing at that area.
Just pull out 57 and look up In there, remove 55.

Default 21 & 55

All - thanks so much for the help. Ended up replacing #21 and #55 and it solved the issue, at least for now!
Wanted to stop back and thank everyone who commented - and leave the fix that worked for me in case anybody else experiences same issue.
