I just got a used older 40Hp with jet pump.....it started right

Customer Question

I just got a used older 40Hp with jet pump.....it started right away and ran great...on the way back to the boat launch thru a viscious rapids it began to lose power, gain power make different noises (like sputtering) and barely got me back....is this because the oil may have been getting lower in the reservoir as a warning sign? There was oil in the reservoir but not full.
Thank you
