Evinrude e70pl4sia

I had a new impeller fitted to this engine, and i now have water coming through no.4 cylinder, engine running on 3 cylinders only, is this just a coincidence or do i have a bigger problem, it is a 2001 engine which has done very few hours.

bigger problem, it is a 2001 engine
Understatement....I would bin it dude. Its an old Evinrude. Not known for their reliability or longevity. Best thing. I would take the transom bolts out whilst out at sea and let the thing go ..after time it will form an artificial reef!!

Blimey.... 2001 and it's doing that!!!

I've had 1980s yams that run perfectly...

I fear it may be terminal....
