Yamaha 80 overheat on 4000rpm

84 yam 80 overheat at 4000 rpm,

had new block, impella and insert.

new gear oil.

new temp sensor.

Timing and and carbs set by (pro).

Runs at 3750 all day long but at 4000 overheat warning and rev limiter cuts in,water stops coming out of tell tale hole, put on idle and within 1 minute will run at 3750 again with no problems.

New block was from 85hp mine is an 80hp, mine had no thermostat but the 85 block did, removed the stat but no diference apart from slow warm up.

any ideas guys?

Whip the cowl off when the alarm's going off. If there's smoke in there then the powerhead/leg gasket hasn't sealed properly when you changed the block and the exhaust gas is pressurising the water system.

Thanks for that

Not what i wanted to hear, but such is life.

I was warned about this b4 installing it, so i took great care to clean both surfaces with 400 wet & dry and a flat metal block, and was also told not to use any gasket sealant.

Would you advise the use of anything with the gasket?

You may have to have it professionally re skimmed to get it perfectly flat before refitting it again, to make sure it seals properly this time?

This stuff is very good. It can be applied with a modelling paintbrush. It's heat resistant to 195 degrees C and will fill a big enough gap that you shouldn't need to skim anything unless it's badly warped. (saying that, if it works then I'd whip the powerhead off and get the face skimmed anyway)
It doesn't set either.

That's assuming that it's what the problem is.

Iv got a couple of other thoughts, may be worth investigating before i have to strip the powerhead off again.

one is- the tube conector on top of the pump housing, should that be water tight to the tube on the engine?.

The other is the prop size, it has a quicksilver 48 16988 a5 18p, I presume that is an 48x18p.

Would that be arround the correct size? If its over proped that could give me an overheat problem may be?.

I tried mono ski with it last weekend and it did not seem to have enough to pull me out fast enough.

No problem on two skis.

That would be a very large prop, Cant be 48x18.

Just mesured the diamiter, its 13".

So must be 13"x18p.

I know a bit about model plane props ( but air's thinner than water) and that seems to be alot of pitch to me.

Nos what have you got on yours?

Just trying to eliminate evrything b4 i have to get the tools out and refit the powerhead.

I would do a compression test before stripping it down.
