The poppet valve should be checked and cleaned too. I don`t understand your ? Motor should idle in gear in the lake at 6-700rpm`s. On a cuff it will idle 900-1000rpm. These Mercury`s are a low pressure cooling system.

sounds like ya probably got it.. knowing tha alarm is working is a plus and usually sufficient but tha only way ta get good information with an unknown and/or "suspect" heating problem is with a heat gun and water pressure gauge..

as for tha idle it can be a coupla things.. is it hard ta shift in and outta gear?

this usually can be taken care of with tha "barrel nut" if clutch dogs are good.. if tha spline alignment is off it will only go into two of tha three gears... something you will notice right off when ya put tha slide and 7/16 nut back together.

got a manual?.. if not I have a pdf with your motor in it i think..
