Fired up motors today,trouble getting port motor to prime(impeller changed last year).cleaned out strainer and the yuk was under the basket? The thru hull and the outdrive Y together and enter the strainer in the lower hole and the pump exits above the basket.I assume this is a factory install.Did not take pic's as this just sunk in after looking on the web.
notice the arrow,I think mine is backwards?
Is this the same unit you guys have?

    @rasbury Flow probably doesn't matter when in water,but trying to run on muffs it sucks the air from the top.and stuff gets under the screen  (basket).
