Please help cannot find oil leak
Case of beer should anyone find this leak for me..
The boot and seal have been replaced, the cap is fine, the oil filter is ok and so is the ring as well as the filler. (tube where the cap goes onto).
However, every time I ride or if I even let the ski sit for a day I find oil at the bottom of the hull. Its right in the center directly under the motor is where the oil seems to sit. I completely cleaned it out many times and let it sit for a day and when I shove my hand under the motor I always feel oil. Cant really say how much however, in 25 hours of riding since my last oil change I had to already add a little more than half a quart.
Could anyone shed some light as to what it may possibly be? Could one of the bolts under the block be torqued wrong or something? I have ran out of options and I cant find any other possibility.

Pull the intake off the charger and see if there is oil in there. But if the clamps are tight even a oil leak in the charger prolly wouldnt make it down there.

Get yourself a mirror and look under the motor and see if you notice anything. Im pretty sure they have dye you can add to your oil and then you can see where its coming from a lot easier. I hope its something simple.

Put some old rags or shirts under the motor and let if sit for a day to see if you can find any oil drips on the rags. That should give you an idea of what part of the motor it's coming from. Then take another rag and tape it and get it into every little space so you can narrow it down some more.

to add to mud bugg 660 just make sure your hall is clean and bottom of motor.then run it up on a water hose for 5 min than lay paper towel flat under your engine crack open a beer.when you are finish the beer take a look and it should be clear where it is comming from.

Oil pressure sensor under the intake manifold.

Driveshaft bearing/boot on motor?

Thanks for the help so far... If it was the sensor however would I be flashing some kind of code? Cause I havent seen a code at all thus far.

You would have a long beep and "oil" would pop up on the display and go into limp mode until oil pressure returns to normal if the oil level is too low. Your sensor was prolly still getting sufficient presure even with the leak.

What type of cleaner to you recommend for the hull?
I'm going to check the sensor and try the rags to see if I notice anything... but no code or beep as of yet
