There is obviously a problem with the engine so you need to get your outboard mechanic to diagnose and then fix it.

Luke are you aware these motors don't pump constant ? Is that what makes you think its overheating ? Did you sort the pull cord out ?

I agree, take it to somebody who can adequately look at it.

could be a number of reasons, like incorrect part, incorrectly installed, or poor quality part.
