Question about Boating
The engine loses around 1 ltr per hour at 3000 rpm. Had mechanic take a look, but he immediately ruled out blow by as the engine starts easily with little smoke. I also have no oil splashing from the filler hole when the oil cap is removed. The engine can also reach 4000 rpm with out to much trouble. The next step is to have the engine removed & dismantled to investigate why this is happening, but cost is an issue. Have you any advice as to what might be causing this? Regards Tim
Oil level correct ? engine breather clean as can cause back pressure ?

Hi, if you can switch on the pump, it's OK. Usually, the pump needs the helm switch on AND the float up. Does the pump not shut off when you push the float down? That would be normal operation, unless the helm switch has both automatic and manual settings.
