Customer Question

I have a omc 140 outboard 1985 when you r u n it it runs perfect and after about 20 min the alarm will sound. A mech. Told me to disconnect the oil reservoir and mix gas 50:1 done that and it still sends a alarm and the beep goes slow when going slow and when you speed up the beep gets faster. Any idea what this could be the motor runs great
