As long as water is coming out of the tell-tale stream "pisser" you should be fine, I've done it so many times and not had any issues. You should also notice water coming out of the screen intake (reverse of what would happen in the water) so water is going by the impeller, thus lubricating it.

Subject: [OMC-Boats] Tell Tale stream

I have a question for the group- How dependable is the hose bib method when doing engine test/tune type things with boat on trailer. I read in the SELOC manual to not exceed 1200 RPM when using hose. I'm concerned it's bypassing the impeller and forcing water into the engine vs. being pulled up by impeller. I get the stream when i use the hose, but had the nagging question in my mind. Am I all wet, pardon the pun, and just not smart enough to know how the lower unit works?
