I am trying to find and fix this oil leak!
The only sure way would be to remove the engine from the boat, then set it up on a test bed
, where it could be run and examined easily. Due to the restricted access, it is impossible to see where the oil is coming from when the engine is installed in the boat. Taking it out of the boat to a test bed
is a major job, probably only possible during a haul out
I was hoping someone else had perhaps had this problem, and knew of a solution that I could do with the engine in the boat!
I have the suspicion that the oil may be coming from a plug
in the rear of the engine block, but to my knowledge these plugs are not usually covering oil ways.
