    I have a ’59 Flying Scott 60 hp that is over heating. I looked at the water pump impeller and it looks good. I did not see any other issues when I pulled the lower unit. It will run 2-3 minutes before the temp light comes on. There is a solid stream of water coming out of the weep hole on the left side under the engine. I have been running it in a test tank. Any ideas on what else might be the problem?

    Some motors have a plate on the lower unit that needs to be removed when running in a tank. Not sure about this motor but would not hurt to look.

    How could I identify that?

    I don’t recall such a plate on the Scott-McCulloch motors. But there are several parts on the exhaust outlet that must be present.
