1966 mercury 200 20 hp

I cannot get water to circulate through the motor. I’ve replaced the impeller and it pumps water when turned with a drill, but no water goes up the water pipe, with the LU off I’ve tried to force water up the pipe with a hose, to no avail. There’s no tell tale water but I can take the hose off the exhaust a blow through it. It’s not plugged up. I pulled the exhaust cover off and found no obvious blockages. What else can I do to get the water to circulate?
Thanks, JD mcalesterjd@yahoo.com
