Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
Hi, my name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your boat question. I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced,I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question. Did you still need some help with this?
Does the rattling come from the engine when the boat is in the water or only on land?
You need to see if the person that stopped mixing the oil either ran a hose from the intake to the outlet on the pump, or removed the pump. If they just drained out the oil then the pump may be coming apart. See the picture.
Well, you can either do an oil pump delete (kits available from aftermarket companies). Or you will likely have to replace the oil pump and drive, all the hoses, reset the linkages, etc. If you're gonna do that get a manual so you can do the adjustments and make sure it is pumping oil before you stop mixing. Get that straight first before you go after the stalling at high rpms, which could be a clogged fuel filter or line.
Yeah, that would also cause it to starve for fuel. But DO NOT run it on straight gas until you are absolutely sure it is pumping oil. Run a 50 to 1 mix and you should be okay.
Yes, the oil light is on a sensor, you can unplug that though, it should be on the oil tank itself. You can do it in the ski.
They will virtually all fit, but newer ones may not have the proper electrical system in the hull to support them.
