Default f300

Anybody own an f300? If so, when you want to run muffs on it do you tape up the high water pick up vents so it will draw enough water? Not much online and don't have owners manual. Can't find much info on it. Thank you.

Dealer taped the ports on mine when running on muffs after changing oil and lower unit oil.

F300,

Rather than using Muffs for engines like this; it is more fool proof to submerge the lower unit in a container of water so that the entire lower leg is underwater. That way, no matter where the pickup is located- the water pump will pump water.

A friend down the street fried his new water pump impeller because his particular muffs did not get water to the pump correctly.

Pretty easy to use an appropriately sized garbage can to submerge the lower unit. Also, any time when working on the engine and you want to be out of the water - it is not a bad idea to remove the prop. That way a spinning prop does not chew up anything and or if the lower unit is submerged, with no prop, a spinning shaft does not blow the water out of the water container.

Best wishes.

They make the muffs to plug the holes on the front of the lower unit but to slap a strip of duct tape over them does the same thing. If you'd rather wrestle a garbage can or tank full of water, have at it!!
