    can water getting into the air intake cause oily exhaust?

    took on some water so i had to tow it to shore. when i try to turn it over on land it took a while cause of the water but it ran normal. just there alot of black oily residue on the exhaust side. is that normal when u burn off water?

    probably fuel from all the cranking, breaking down the oil in the exhaust

    you better go ride that thing for a bit before you put it up to get all the water out of the motor

    i did, ran it throught the hose for 5 min. i didnt know that a loose drain hole. just half a turn could cause a leak. lol

    I think WFO meant to actually ride it. You're not going to generate enough heat in the motor with it idling on the trailer to vaporize that water.

    You need to actually ride it, just like like stated above so the water vaporizes out.
