    Seadoo rxp PTO Bearing and oil leak

    I have a recent rebuild and have replaced motor, checked all the lines. I replaced the oil today and checked it as i should have by waitng 3o secs ...yada yada yada...When i looked in the bottom of the rxp I saw oil in the bottom. I pulled the motor again to check to make sure everything was tight and it was. The only thing I did was run the motor without the drive shaft in place. When looking at the motor I could not find an oil leak anywhere. My question is...do you have to run the drive shaft in place and will the oil leak out if it is not in place? I checked the bearing and the boot around the PTO and they are fine...Can anyone help me with this? I checked all the thread and could not come up with anything....Also...is the two clamps that hold the boot on metal?
    The rebuild is a 2004 RXP..

    Welcome to Greenhulk...

    Yes, you need to have the driveshaft in place or you will piss oil out all over the place...

    Oh...the oil was approx 3/4 of a gallon...so the leak has to be big...

    Yes it can...LOL..Also when putting the driveshaft in to run the ski make sure your pump is in too..you dont want the driveshaft flopping around...That can become a very costly mistake too..
