Got a 91 mercury classic 40hp I have water coming out the bottom of a sqaure plate with bolts in it on the left side of what I think is the power head.is this just a simple gasket fix or is it signs of somthing worse? the pic is where the water is leaking from coming out the bottom while running. Any help would be appreciated 20150308_132230.jpg

More than likely, it's just the gasket. Pull the plate off and take a look see.

Yes. In a nutshell, The power head is the block, heads, Pistons & crank shaft. Been a while that I haven't been into one of those motors, but I'm pretty sure that all that cover plate does, is channel the cooling water over the sides of the block and cylinders.
