    Oil return problem

    I just got through replacing my broken magneto bolts and installing a new magneto in my 05 rxt. I took both oil pumps apart and found no metal in them. I also cleaned the screens which had very little debris in them. I started the ski on the hose and after about 1 min my warning beeper came on and I had a ck engine message. First thing I did was ck all the fluids and my dipstick was showing no oil on it. I checked for oil leaks and found none. So I let the ski sit for about 15-30 minutes periodically checking the oil level and it slowly returned to normal. Anybody have any ideas on what I messed up? Also I have a connector which I believe goes to a knock sensor but it doesnt seem that my ski has one.

    You have a scavenge pump problem probably left out a pin or didnt get the drive engaged.

    Did you split the cases? The oil pumps are driven by the counterbalace shaft. I bet the rear one isnt engaged Pull the water pump and see if you can spin the impeller by hand

    The same shaft that drives the water pump drives the oil pump
