Is water supposed to come out of here?

Just changed impeller on 75 elpto. Telltale merilly squirting away. However water also escaping from small hole in front of the port side of the leg. Don't remember seeing that before.

Cheers

Yes I was, and when I turned the pressure down it reduced to a trickle from there. I dropped the lower part again just to be sure, and the seal was perfect around the water pump so I guess I can't have done anything wrong!

It's fine, water is supposed to come from there.

I'd have been worried if I'd seen what you described and the boat was in the water.
