    Quick Oil Question , help please!

    I know this may be a dumb question , but im having a brain fart right now but do you check your oil level when the machine is warm or cold, i know it has to be in the middle of the indent but when its hot or cold. Cause i think i added to much oil cause i checked when it was cold, and it was way to low so i added some oil then i checked when i got back and it was way to high so... could you guys help me out please! Thanks

    Run the machine till it`s good and hot! then stop engine let rest for a minute or 2 and check oil, about 2/3 up dipstick is good! If it is at the top bend or over you are overfilled...hope this helps...PR...

    Ditto all that Pale Rider said. In addition to all he said make sure the boat is "level" when you are doing this . . . . be it in the water or on a trailer.

    Nothing is worse than a lake that's on a hill.
