Destroyed oil seals and missing rod bushings..
I'll start by saying hello Greenhulk!
I purchased the craft with 170hrs on it and now has almost 200hrs on it, and ran fine until last weekend. The guy I purchased it from didn't know if the engine had been rebuilt before but I found out it has been and was done terribly wrong!
It started out by loosing a lot of power after about 15s on the water so I docked it immediately and eventually I figured out the rear oil seals where completely destroyed and one seized on the PTU coupling!
Took the engine apart and I found this.. #1 cylinder has a discolored rod and a rusting/corroding crank from the missing rod bushing with no signs of it anywhere.
#2 cylinder is perfect and not missing any bushings.
#3 cylinder is missing one also but is not discolored because luckily it never found metal on metal.
And lastly I found this in between #2 and #3. I can't notice it moving when it's on the dowel so I hope this wont be a problem.
Anyways my question is do you think I'll be able to put new rod bushings and bearing on without having any issues? Thanks!
