    Question

    Oil pump removal with engine in hull:

    With the carbs removed, is is possible to reach down in far enough to remove the oil pump? Also, your tech page mentioned a plastic shaft that has to be pulled out with plyers. Can this be done with the engine in the hull? I don't recall a plastic shaft when I installed the engine (1996 SLT780). Is the plasic shaft hard to remove? My line of site and room to work is tight.

    Right now I'm running premix with a bad oil pump. If possible, I'd like to block it off without pulling the motor.

    Thanks!

    Jamie.

    No I do'nt think there is enough clearance between the plate.

    along these lines, Tech #2, do you see a problem with this scenario? :

    I'm thinking if I can't get mine out (gonna give it a good try this weekend) then what if I take the supply line, and tee it to the three outlets, thereby creating a loop.

    Then you'll burn it out, and have a nice air leak into your case eventually.

    Okey-doke. Get this, I measured last time out, just how much it was using, and man, to my surprise, instead of less, it was using double (20:1)

    It is not a platsic gear it is metal and it is on a shaft. You should be able to take the pump off then pull the shaft out with needlenose pliers etc. Then put the block off plate on with the o-ring, either a new one or off of the pump. If you need pics let me know and I will post them 4 you.

    The problem is the clearance, there often isn't any.

    do you think this can be done with the engine in the hull? I'm sure I can get the pump out, but not sure about the gear/shaft. What if the gear/shaft is not removed?
