    1977 Johnson 70 hp is overheating. I replaced the impeller on the water pump and now it overheats. I took of the thermostat off and I am getting no water up top when the dog ears are on. Any ideas? What did I screw up and or miss?

    Try putting it together again.
    You've got something missing or installed incorrectly.
    Either a missing or split seal, oring, gasket or key.
    Or an impeller that has separated from it's center metal bushing.
    Make sure you have the complete parts/assembly diagram
    for your year and model outboard.
