Opti Max/Smart Craft

9 posts in this topic

This all began, Last year my oil level dropped down below a 1/4 tank and the buzzer for low oil sounded, now the alarm sounds about every other trip out and reads that the "oil reserve is 100%" on one of the Smart Craft Gauges even though the oil tank is full and the oil consumption seems normal. How do I stop this alarm or reset this so it stops sounding?

Thanks HTB

So the buzzer goes off, indicating you're low on oil, but the gauge shows that it's full, is that correct?

Under the cowl there is a small oil resevoir on the port side. Check and make sure it is 100% full with zero air in it.

When the buzzer is supposed to sound when the the main oil tank is empty and indicate the amount left in the reserve tank on the motor. I checked the the reserve tank, it is full with no air and cap is tight and the buzzer still will sound at any time, even if the main oil tank is full. :(, I've tried resetting the guage with a full oil tank but no luck. Any help or sdvice would be great!

That sucks and it's not like you can ignore it, that alarm is a blood curdling sound.

I do know that you can disable the Oil Alarm function in the smart guage fairly easily, but I don't think that will make the alarm go away.

that's a tough one.

Sounds like the float is stuck or needs to be replaced to me... however, I'm not familiar enough with the system to know if it's the float in the main tank or in the tank on the motor.

Do you have different alarms for different things?

Mine has been going off when I'm idling around, or backing the boat off the trailer or from dock. But I think mine is from the water pump impeller. I've heard these should be replaced every 3 years or so as preventative maintenance. Could this be what is causing your alarm to go off?

The main tank has no float, just a electronic sensor I think.

I had a chance to check this out yesterday and found that there is a float in the oil tank and the oil reserve tank did have about a inch of air in it, topped that reserve off and the alarm quit sounding smile. Thanks for the help and suggestions.

    • If I understand correctly this only for bows. I have a crossbow and from what I understand it is considered a firearm. Is that the case? My son has a bow and has the archery tag.
    • so ... dillon has a bird to enter and 1957 is still hunting? looks like we are in good shape, but lot of guys still hunting in MN and WI, i assume   ended my season friday. got the blind set up before the shower started. it quit right before sunrise time and there was lots of gobbling on the roost a couple hundred yards away but none where i heard them close by when scouting a couple days earlier. a few distant gobbles on the ground, then nothing after the rain and wind picked up again. finally saw a hen step out of the woods about 830 and start heading toward me. soft yelps kept her coming, then out steps a big tom and several more hens heading my way but when they got to an opening in the fence from the stalk field into another timber, the tom paused, i had the bead on him, decided it was too far, and then they were gone the rain quit a half hour later and i ramped up the calling with some louder yelps and cutts. a few minutes later a head comes over a rise in the field and its a solo tom. he ignored the dekes and headed toward the fence gap where the others went, stopped and fanned without gobbling, but some soft yelps, clucks and purrs kept him coming my way. dropped him at 40 yards after stepping it off to where he lay, i kept going to where the other tom left the field and it was 55 big steps, so glad i didnt shoot went 23, 10, 1 but the rain cut loose again on the way back to the truck so i didnt take pictures  
    • If you were anywhere close to southern Minny I would invite you over and let you drive mine and show you the things I look for both in the jeep and plow since mine seems pretty close to what you are looking for. If you have any questions PM me.
    • Good luck PFUNK! Looking like that will be my next day out too. forecast looks good as well!
    • I think the TJ might be the best choice with the 4.0 which is what I did.I bought the plow used after the fact. I got the plow for 1200 but the wiring was not good nor was the mount so I had a new custom, heavier duty mount made at a fab shop and I bought a brand new wiring kit from Western. I also bought all stainless bolts for it so there are no rust issues with them. Wiring the plow was a task. I basically had to remove the entire interior including console, seats and many dash parts to run the wiring.   One thing to consider- There is really very little room for much of anything in them. Running new wires, adding a speaker anywhere or even having 2 guys, 2 guns, a dog and a cooler is a tight fit. The back seat works for kids but not adults and mostly I take my back seat out so I have at least some room to put stuff. Running the wiring to run the plow took probably 8 hours or more spread over a few days and for a bigger guy it's pretty much impossible to reach under the dash and run wires,connect to fuse blocks even with the seat removed.    But the ability to take off the top and cruise the gravel roads with no doors while hunting is not possible in basically any other vehicle except maybe a Manx Dune buggy which has also been on my bucket list and those aren't 4x4. 
    • Anyfish is correct,I will add you can buy a archery tag and hunt the entire rest of the season in any turkey zone.
