Motor Help!!!

4 posts in this topic

SO i have a 93 Mariner 40 hp tiller. I used it about 1 and a half days ago with no problems..tonight as I am letting the dog out i notice a large pool of oil on the driveway leaking from the motor and all pooled up in the water catch in the rear. The boat was not touched since the last time it was used...so far I have not been able to find where it is coming from and everything looks to be ok (other than oil everywhere...)anyone have any ideas on what could have happened? Im taking it in tommorrow to have it worked on but i thought i would pose the question on here as well?

Thanks

Are you sure it's oil?

It could possibly be exhaust, unburnt fuel oil mixture leaking down and pooling up.

No it is definatly the oil...my motor has a separate area in the motor to put in the oil (no mixing) and i got out there to try and stop the leaking and watched the level in that container drop until there was nothing left in it...

Did you check the hose, connections, and oil filter for leaks. Or maybe a crack in the oil tank. If its not coming from any of the above your oil pump would be the next in line.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
