    Help- i just blew all of the oil out of my motor

    It appears to be coming out of the PTO cover where the drive shaft goes into the cover.

    I had it on the hose and it was a steady stream.... drive shaft was NOT installed....

    WTF????

    I guess you could if you wanted to tilt the ski back to drain but what a mess.
    I have to ask why did you have the drive shaft out???

    While I was doing the open loop cooling I had the pump off to send the 3 blade back for a re-pitch.. I took the shaft out to see what the wear marks were after 10 hours on the SKAT bearing carrier. Zero wear on a side note...

    Ya... the oil change method, a side from the oil puddle in the ski, might that be that good since your ski is running as the oil is spewing out...
