You did check the intake screen for algae or debris? Sounds like the
impeller is worn out. Don't ever start the engine without water hooked up
to the intake. A dry impeller will overheat in seconds due to the friction of
the rubber against the metal casing.

Are you sure your hoses are hooked up correctly?

The tell tale should always shoot a stream of water out the outdrive when
the engine is running.

That reminds me - my 50 hp mercury outboard is not squirting a tell tale - I
think a mud dauber may have plugged it up.
