Why not pull the lower unit and throw a new impeller at it..

I've done this in the parking lot at Mohave and Mead before. (Alpha units)

O'rielies has 160* SBC thermostats on the shelf, too.

If its a Volvo or OMC, well IDK.

Lower unit water pump impeller and housing time.

Mercs cooling system doesn't function correctly without a T-Stat. FYI

Why not fix the damn thing?

I'm missing something.

The water pump on an I/O should be changed ANNUALLY.
