      You’re spot on Kevin. Just gotta save $$. Maybe I can sell 100 cutting boards 😂

    Check out that lower unit, it may have some value, will help offset that new repower!

    Best on saving for and ordering your new power!

      ANYTIME! a motor slows down from failure it's toast. Shitload of friction somewhere. Scoring, wiping, accelerated wear.

          I will be looking for a 115. If you see or hear of a good used one I’d be interested too. Just don’t want someone else’s issues. I think 90 may make the boat a bit underpowered.

            Only reason I prefer 115 over 140 is because boat is rated up to 135.

          OP, I don't know where you boat, but even if you can pick up a 14' tin boat with a 20 on back it will get you on the water (sheltered) for the season. When you're getting close to making your O/B purchase trade it or sell it for the added cash.

            I’m in SE Florida. However we have a few vacations planned for the summer so I won’t be anything for fishing. Maybe a couple fishing charters.

          Ok guys I added a gallon of oil and…fired it up! I then shut it up and hooked the hose with muffs. I fired it up again and it ran fine. I had the cowling off and notice oil coming out. I quickly shut it down. The oil leaked out and accumulated in the lower part of the top of the engine. See the pictures. I had to put oil pans under it to catch the oil spewing out.

          The good news is it’s not seized. The bad news is the leak is substantial. Once running that gallon came out in about a minute or 2 once the motor was started.

            Maybe it's salvageable, low hours on her I'd hate to have her become a part motor. Locate a reputable mech/shop and see what the fix price will be. I'm hoping the oils coming from a lose filter.

            I may remove the parts so I can access the oil filter and see if I can see anything wrong with it. If not, may contact a mechanic at least for a quote.

        • #26
          Can you see where it is coming out from? Oil Filter, hole in block???

            Pull the side belly pans off, it's only 4-6 screws.

          You’re going to have to remove the side cowling halves, flywheel cover and air intake on the right side to see the powerhead better to diagnose the leak. Disconnect the trim switch harness on the left cowling or swing it away and in front of the engine.
          Could you see if the oil was coming from the front, rear or sides?

            I’ll pull the side cowlings off this weekend. It appeared to be coming from the sides as it was filling the side cowling area. Also it appeared there was some sort of liquid dripping off the fuel filter, I thought it could have been gas but maybe it was oil?

              You describe the oil coming out pretty quickly, as if was under pressure. From my chair, it sure sounds like the oil pressure sender, which is just in front of the High Pressure fuel filter on the right side.
              Will wait on some more pics and update, when you can get to it.

                Don't wright that engine off just yet.

                5 years ago my high pressure fuel pump hose ruptured, filling intake with fuel and causing blow by in the cylinders.

                Problem started & I checked the oil right away to see what was going on, full of oil.

                Ran the engine off/on as I was trouble shooting - I had no clue what the problem was. It would run at higher RMPs - using the extra fuel... low RPM's it was a mess. I tore everything apart, cleaned all the sensors - ran it after every step.

                Checked oil again and at some point the excess fuel displaced all of the oil - my oil reservoir was full of fuel, so I stopped ASAP and took it to a mechanic.

                The engine was running for a period with no oil...

                That was 5 years ago - and probably 5-700 hours of hard use - still runs just fine.
