Anyone Run A Tohatsu 50 2 Stroke

Pal has just got a Gemini with twin 50 HP 2 strokes, problem is when using muffs 1 of the engines exits cooling water from the exhaust outlet as well as through the prop while the 2nd one doesnt with water only exiting through the prop, does anyone know or would anybody check theres to establish which one is correct.
Thanks Mike

I think that when the motor gets to operating temp the thermostat opens and then water should exit both prop and exhaust port. Im no expert tho,

correct, when the stat opens the water exits below the cowel aswell as the telltail, sounds like the stat is stuck open on one motor.
hope this helps
