    Going pre-mix, does the oil pump have to be removed?

    I was thinking about going pre-mix and I was put over the edge when I noticed the oil injection hose was popped off on the other GPR i bought with a blown rear cylinder. And if that wasnt enough, the oil injection cable is stuck shut on the running ski im assembling... Just too many things to go wrong with that system and I would be OCD'n if i didnt bypass it. In a perfect world I would be able to drain the oil tank (already did in the bottom of my hull, yay!) ziptie up the oil level gauge and be on my way... can it possibly be that easy?

    I would remove the pump....parts are around $15.00..

    I believe the pump was lubricated by the oil in the tank...I wouldn't let the pump run without oil...

    Just my humble opinion.

    Yeah i did some searching around and the consensus is to remove it. So I have gotten the chamber off and have full access to it now. Tomorrow I will remove it and make a block-off plate.

    Make sure you seal the plate you made. Don't want water to get in side the flywheel cover!

    Thanks for the headup, yeah i was gonna just cut one from some gasket material I have.


    While I was lookin around I noticed the air intake box is just wide open and low... seems like one of those huge dryer vent hoses should be connected to it? The other GPR is the same way..

    Just me but that stuff goes in the trash!LOL You can put a Riva filter on the end or leave it alone! Just make sure you have no loose parts floating around in the hull!! Screens are inside the plastic box. I run my fuel rail with no protection. Better air flow for me. Lee
