    Oh where or where did the oil go?

    Just rebuilt an 05 RXP, manual states 4.1 quarts, I've added almost 5 quarts and it barely reaches the bottom of the dipstick. I realize this is a dry sump system, but doesnt the oil drain back into the sump after sitting a while?

    Had a similar problem and found that oil was leaking from the PTO bearing.

    The bearing was not on right when I rebuilt the engine.

    make sure the ski is not at any incline. make sure it sits at 0 degrees. like it would be sitting in water

    Your oil level won't read properly until after it's run.

    I've ran it on a hose for several minutes, I guess I'll add a little more oil and check it again.
