Chnage dimpeller but still have a poor telltale - what next?

Hi All

I had no telltale on my motor so changed the impeller. Its still virtually non-existant tho there is a tiny bit getting through now.

Lots of water out the prop, which is warm.

I've stripped off all the pipes leading to the telltale ('pissers' as they call them here! ) and it all seems clean - i can blow through everyhting easily.

Any ideas would be welcome.

Check your thermostat or any other void or cavity that could fill up with salt, this might reduce the pressure of the tell tale so it does not piss with as much vigour, we wouldn't want that!
New boat is here, very happy!
