    Oil in intake?

    I searched for this topic but couldn't find anything on it.

    Anyone ever have oil in the intake? I have always had some at the bottom of my Riva intake. My oil breather IS attached to the intake but I couldn't see any oil in that hose or in the intake where the hose attaches to the intake. I actually run these gasses through a Groco strainer before they go to the intake and I've never seen oil in the strainer--I don't think the oil is coming from the oil scavenger.

    It's weird but there is really no oil in the SC itself or the IC either.

    Any possibility of the oil coming from the bushing in the SC--maybe leaking past the bushing somehow?

    Thanks in advance.

    If I'm understanding you correctly, the oil may be so finely vaporized that it's passing through the higher pressure areas and gradually condensing, and pooling, on the relatively low pressure area on the inside of the Riva intake. My guess would be that if you rubber-banded a folded rag on the end of the breather hose, you'd see some oil deposition on the rag.

    Thanks for the post Kelly but I don't think that's it. Reason is I get the condensed water in the Groco and it seems to stop there as I couldn't feel any in the Riva intake above the SC.

    I get oil in the bottom of the intake. I think it's coming from the SC.

    I always get a little oil in the intake Craig, mainly on the inside of my BOV hose that connects from the SC to the IC. I think it's 100% normal.
    I even had my oil level overfilled by a quart by the dealer when I first got the ski and even then it was just a little oil in the intake.
