    Angry 155 with oil in the coolant

    I checked the coolant today and it was obvious that there was alot of oil in it. I immediately though that I had blown a headgasket but that can't be the case. The engine runs perfect, pulled the plugs and there was no sign of water, also checked the oil, no water there either. Apparently there is a seal that goes bad with the water/oil pumps in the PTO? The engine needs to be pulled to service it. What should this service cost me? Anyone know who could take care of this problem in the central Florida area?

    Also would the cooler be more likely to fail then whatever the seals are? It only has 96 hours on it and its an 03.

    You have to pull the intake manifold to get to the oil cooler, which really is no big deal. Have you been changing the coolant every couple years?

    I can plainly see the cooler and can get to the 4 bolts that hold it on. Keep in mind this is a Sportster not a ski so I have alot more room. Why would I need to pull the manifold? Also what is the name of the sockets I need for the hex head bolts and where can I get them? As far as the coolant being change every few years I have no idea as I just bought the boat 2 weeks ago. But if any of the other issues I have found are any indication the coolant has probably never been changed.
