I don't know what year you have but if I'm not mistaken there's a plastic nut or something along those lines that allows you to remove the piece with the small hole in it. That should allow you to clear it if it's stopped up.

You can also pull the cowl off and follow the tubing up to the engine block. Pull the hose off and run some compressed air through it. You can usually squish the hose a little and see if there's some sort of blockage inside of it. Also, take a drill bit and run it up where the water comes out to see if there's an obstruction there. While you're doing all this you can go to the hardware store and find some clear plastic tubing to replace the OE black hose so you can see if there's clogs in it in the future.

Try this. Take a length of weed eater line and push it up through the pee hole (on the motor). This has cleared my blockage more then once. ( on the motor) If it starts coming out stronger you are good to go. Good luck.

I've read this post four or five times now....cracks me up every time....reminds me of a memorable scene in a forgettable movie (Moving Violations)

Depends on the yea model.  If yours exits out the back corner of the cowling, you have to take the cowling off to remove it. 

If it exits out the mid section just above the exhaust relief, use a 13/16" socket/wrench and unscrew that plastic nut to take it out.  Just in case you didn't know, that is also where you connect a garden hose to run it, instead of using muffs.  Also, be very careful and don't over tighten it putting it back or you will bust  that plastic housing.  That's another $50 and an hours work if you do, guess how I know.

If its the one in the mid-section it's hard to see the hole, it comes out of the side of the nozzle.  you have to take it out.

Way2slow i'm not sure what your talking about could you send me a picture , it is in the back of the midsection and i see a small amount of water coming out of it but i don't see no way to take it out  but their something there keeping me from seeing the hose, i was told as long as the lower section of the motor was in water i couldn't hurt the motor is that true i have it in a 50 gallon tub and its in plenty of water up to the fin, i put $800.00 in it last Spring & i don't want to hurt my motor. i don't no nothing about boats ive worked all my life & mostly manual overtime. Thank You all very much

This is a picture of where it's at, but that's the adapter already screwed in.  The pisser is in that location and held in by a 13/16" nut.  You will not see a hole, until you take it out and look at it from the side.  The proper name for it is the flushing port. 

If you have it in water up to or past the anticavitation plate your ok, or it you have a hose in the flushing port with water running in it.  It does not have to be in water when a hose is supplying water through the flushing port. 

By the way, you don't need an adapter, a garden hose end screws directly into the port also.

Also, it's black plastic and my be hard to tell it's a nut but it is.  Just stick a 13/16 socket on it and start turning counter clockwise, it will come out after four or five turns.  When putting it back in, have it aimed at about a 45 degree downward angle toward the drivers side.

First, is this a two stroke or a four stroke.  I'm referring to the two stroke, and have never seen a four stroke.   31390_31450_F.JPG

Does the boat have a water pressure gauge, I wouldn't put mine in the water without one?  I throw the speedometer in the trash but would not run without a tach and water pressure gauge.   I would just check that the next time,  Dirt dobbers, those suckers love ready made holes,  keep my pisser plugged up most of the time and I rarely check it.  I go by my water pressure on the dash.  Not sure about the four stroke but 16 pounds is usually about the minimum you want to see when running in the lake.  Mine drops to about 10 at idle and is 20 - 25 running.
