Lower unit -inspect-lube

First  run in the barrel
I only ran it a minute to check water flow.
But these will not pickup water like one with an impeller.
It needs some forward motion.
Since I will not be going to the lake, I will fab a forced water induction for the scoop to see how she cools.
At least she is back up and making smoke.
