Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

Expert:  Charles replied 7 months ago.

The rapid bepping could have been the oil cap. Have you tried to run the engine since replacing the cap?

just today. Put boat in water and started the motor had the beeping right away turned off motor and took boat home

Ok, make sure that the tank is full to the top. If it is not, that will sound the alarm.

Do you have the serial number of the engine? I need to look and see if it has another sensor for the oil system.

Thanks,

You do have the oil pump sensor on the engine. Do you have a multimeter and a 15/16"socket, we can test the drive on the pump.

No I'm headed to work now. Wouldn't have time until tomorrow morning
Expert:  Charles replied 7 months ago.

No worries, there are no time limits here. We can continue then if you can get the meter and the socket.
