It's been about a year since it has been run. The person I bought it from had the engine rebuilt. He is a BMW tech and hoped he knew what he was doing. He told me to expect some oil to be present but I did not expect this much. I attempted to suck the oil out through the cylinder and through the hole after removing the carb.
Some more information might help us help you....
How long has it been since the boat was run?
Who was the last person to work on the boat?
Have you had it since it was new...if not do you have any service records from previous owner?
If the engine is still turning that is a good sign
I am hoping that I am close. I think it almost started right about the same time the batteries ran dead. I am currently charging batteries and am hoping for success this evening. I don't have any of the records and he does not remember if he replaced the crank(which I hear may be the cause for the excessive oil).
Thanks for the reply, let me know if you want an update or if you have any wisdom to share in general on this boat.
