Mercury overheats when stop after long drive and overflowing from tank. Changed thermostat, flushed 5 or 6 times still some brown in tank. Changed plug wires in case of missfire and only when air is on does it overheat are my blades in pump bad or how to check them.

Do you
have the same problem?

Could be the water pump impeller-if it continues to overheat have it block and pressure tested-
