You know the engine
was just purring along. Smooth and quiet. The oil leak
must have started 15 minutes into the break in point. Pumped 2/3 quart of oil
out of the bilge
. Took some looking to find it. There was some corrosion
on the oil
line down by the starter. The rest of it looked fine. 3" from the engine banjo connection is where it was leaking....
So much for a clean bilge
Of course, lucky me it happened at the dock
and not underway. Of course, where it was leaking was the most inaccessible part too. The engineers at Yanmar
should be shot for designing a thin wall mild steel
tubing for the oil line that rusts...
So have a new oil line set coming. Be here next week probably toward the end of the week. So still dead in the water
.. Really need to get away from the dock
