Multiple small problems with my 04 Ultra 150
Ok so I have a few problems with my 04 Ultra 150. First I have oil at the bottom of my hull. I brought it to the dealer they said it was fine also I have asked a few guys on this site and they said either oil lines are cracked or the sending unit in the oil tank I have checked both and they are fine the dealer also told me everything was fine. This happened early this year and the ski has ran fine since then. So if you guys have any ideas keep em coming. So now I want to clean the bottom of the hull not to sure how or what product to use?
Second, The fuse holder seems like it has unbolted and was just dangeling around in there do any of you know where it bolts to?
Third, I am getting alot of oxidation on my battery posts also my plugs and my bolts on my heads are rusting. The plugs are only 2 months old. This only started happening this year. What would cause that?
And last, My rubber mat in the back has unglued I have tried a few different types of adhesives with no success any ideas?

Im taking a guess you ride in salt water from the white residue. For the corosion I would say you need to rinse after ridding and use silacone spray or fluid film to protect everything. I would also pulll the seat and raise the hood with the bucket out to let it dry out.
The amount of oil residue looks to be almost non existent from the pics. I put in some dishwashing liquid and some water then use a scrub brush. When done pull the drain plugs or just go ride and let the bilge pump take it out.
To stick the mat back down try weldwood contact adhesive. Clean the old glue off first.

Thanks Morris for the tips. I do not ride salt water though only fresh water lakes and rivers. Would something else be causing this?
And do you know the fuse holder mounts to?

I had trouble with oil going everywhere. It was coming from where the pickup goes into the tank. I tried wrapping it with safety wire to secure it better and it still leaked. I finally ended up running the oil level lower and it helped. Try not filling it all the way.
Rust on the spark plug shells won't hurt anything. It indicates poor plating by (I'm guessing) NGK. Mine are rusty, too.

If you want to get rid of the oil, check out "oil eater" at your local national chain auto parts store. Supposedly biodegradeable and pretty much does not need any elbow grease. Like posted above, get some fluid film to protect the ski.
