Upper seal question

Recommended Posts

Hooked up this morning to get ready to go out on the water and shop oil on shop floor from what seems to be leaking from the upper seal. If i keep the resevoir full, its just below the add line now, will it be ok to use for the weekend?

I wouldn't recommend it. I know that on our boat, a Sig 240, the entire drive is underwater at idle. If oil is leaking out, water can leak it. That can only lead to trouble. Sorry. Hy

yep, +1

what could hopefully be just a seal now could be gear damage real quick, do a pressure / vac test to see for sure what it is,hopefully just a cracked fitting going to the bottle or bad vent washer, here's hoping.
