That is good news. I was hoping it was just the waterpump and not a major engine failure....mudd_catt said:had to go to bed. May have good news, repair shop don't think motor is a complete loss, maybe just water pump. It turns over real good without spark plugs in, so not locked up, and he doesn't think rings totally shot, as has too much compression with plugs in. Just a waiting game. Good thing I still have the 140 Evinrude.
