    Rxtx-260 oil leak

    Well finially got my ski back from the dealership from getting the tunnel fixed where the insert and tunnel had come apart and where causing a leak. So I took it out this past weekend as was down on speed and toms after just putting a sppedfreeks prop in and that had me a little concerned until I pulled my drain plugs after putting the ski up on the trailer and I noticed oil rainbows below the ski so I popped the seat to look at things and the whole hull was covered in a frothy oil layer. Didn't really look to much into it because of my discust. Any thoughts

    Maybe coming from the drive shaft area? Was the oil leaking prior to the insert being replaced?

    Bring it back to the dealer and have them fix it.

    Myself and JPT are having the same issue. I think it's one of two things...
    I cleaned the hull real good yesterday, waiting for this week of rain to stop so I can get out there and troubleshoot.
    I plan on calling CJ and picking his brain. Keep an eye on your level if your still running it.

    I think my oil leak is from kanaflex ribs interfering with bellows and pushing against PTO oil seal. I have since installed a 45 degree 4" silicone intake tube to keep kanaflex away from bellows. After my go fast mods I'll be able to test my theory.

    I had some oil in the hose from SC to the IC, and IC had a fair amount of oil residue in it. Obviously, the SC seal was leaking. so there was some loss of oil there also. I've since rebuilt SC with ET137 and viton seal, and cleaned out IC. I have around 65 hours on ski.

    I'm going to pull out my IC and inspect on Monday(my next day off).
    I had a little oil residue in my kanaflex too, but blew it off
