Must have got some wood in the intake of my Optimax on my last trip out because the pressure gauge needle is not moving. I just replaced pump and impeller about 2 weeks ago and it was working until idling through a large stump field Sat morning and bumping a few.
Can anyone suggest a way to clear the debris from the intake?
I've tried to see if anything is visible but can see anything?
Motor is getting water, Smartcraft is reading normal temps, so no major issue there. I just like to watch pressure and temps anytime I'm running, so I use both

Disconnect the water line at the lower and blow backwards through it while hand operating a small drill bit in the water pickup hole.

Water pressure comes off powerhead and speedo pickup is on leading edge of lower unit.The line to gauge may have kinked.or gauge itself has quit.
