I just read that thread, that was a tough job. I will have to hope my manifold is not in the way.

Main Message Board / Finally found oil leak
« on: Today at 06:42:06 PM »
I noticed oil leaking last summer but could not find the source. Boat was launched today so was able to run the engine. I believe my oil sending unit is the culprit. Very hard to see but I can see oil on the tip of it.  I had thought it was the oil pan gasket or rear main seal so this is actually good. I have looked around on the site but have not found the procedure yet. I think I can remove the alternator and be able to get to it. While I am in this area of the engine is there anything else I should  check or perform maintenance on ? m25xp

Thanks for taking the time to post this. I am a little shocked/amazed at the amount of stuff you scraped out. I have played with out gasoline tanks and they usually are clean. I am assuming this is a diesel fuel issue. I am now a believer if the bio additives.

Just  a question, when scrubbing the topsides do you start at the bow or stern? I start at the bow however when I finish in the cockpit area I always leave foot prints.

Glenn, beautiful work. Are you going to be afraid to use it?

I am afraid to mount it!

BA,   I read the thread where you were having your prop checked back in January and then more recently about your trans slipping.  Did you have it fixed and was there a problem with it that could have caused the problem you have now? How did you confirm hitting the log? Just asking because maybe there is another issue to consider.

If I remember this weekend I will try mine as I am still on the hard, I painted it Saturday and it turned freely so I am assuming it was in neutral. When are you launching over on the eastern shore? We had some boats go in this week.

Hopefully the pictures come out, I'm somewhat impaired when it comes to resizing them.

To answer a few questions. We were there when the boat was pulled out of the water and we pointed out that it was set on the cradle to far aft and it would have to be moved forward in the cradle which we assured they would take care of. It was the end of the day and the boat was going to be by the travel lift until the next day. I had to leave the next morning and was going to be out of state for an extended period and my better half said she would check on the boat. A couple of days later she informed me that it didn't look like they had reset the boat on the cradle and where they placed it, it looked to be bow down. I contacted the yard and told them that it was imperative that it be placed bow up and was assured they would take care of it. Last year it was stored very slightly bow down and we had about an inch of ice that had frozen in the cockpit and I explained that it can not be stored that way again. Again I told them in no uncertain terms to make sure it was bow up when it was stored this last year. The owner said that it didn't matter because it would be shrink wrapped and I again told them that I was paying for it and I wanted it done right.

By the time I got back to check on the boat the weather had moved in and because of all the ice and snow the tug couldn't get to the boat to move it. I told them that this was unacceptable and they told me that because of the slight grade in the yard they couldn't get it bow up. I told them that all they had to do was set the boat down and move the tug around and back the boat in and it would have been bow up because of the grade. They said that would have been a lot of work and I told them it's also a lot of money. We had a very bad winter here in northern Michigan and once the weather set in there was nothing that could be done. We received so much snow that Lake Michigan is up 11 inches from last year.

So anyway the short version is the insurance adjuster will be coming out this week and I've hired a surveyor to inspect it and give us an estimate on the cost of repairs if it can be repaired.

I have never seen a keel blocked like that in the 4 th picture. I mostly see cradles with 4 pads on the hull and then wood under the front and rear of the keel.

It is a shame what happened to you but maybe in time you will end up in a better situation. Just trying to be a little positive, easier said than done.

it is the one on top
