Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.
Got it. Can you be more specific about the boat hopping? Is it porpoising?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I talked to man I bought it off of...he said I wasnttrimmimg up enough..told me how to do it to get it corrected so the alarms are the only issue now
Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.
Hopping in and out of the water would be trimming up to far. Just the opposite. If you fully trim in/down does the boat still hop? More importantly, will the alarm stop if you fully trim down?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

locate the oil pump alarm module. Find the white wire, unplug it, turn the key on and test the power coming from the module. It should read at least 12.
Turn the key off and reconnect the white. Probe into the blue/white with it still connected. Turn the key on. Using a15/16" socket, slowly turn the motor over using the flywheel nut. The meter should go from about 0 to 5V and then back down to about 0 with in 2 revolutions of the flywheel.
Does yours do this.
I also submitted the phone offer that you requested.
