    951 oil pump cable????

    Does any one know what happens to oil flow when/if the oil pump cable breaks? When the pump lever springs back does the pump go into a failsafe mode? Thanks for any info.

    supposed to go to fail safe..

    that's if the cable is free all the way to the pump. on older cables, the ones prone to fail, there is enough friction in the cable sheath to keep the oil pump at whatever setting it was at when it broke.

    proceed with caution

    Thanks for the reply. I recently had some motor work done. Upon inspection I found the oil pump cable loose in the bottom of the hull. I did run the boat and was wondering why the motor didn't blow. the failsafe explains a lot since the boat was idling rough and would clean itself up once it gained some speed.

    thanks

    oil pump is "supposed" to go full on when it comes off/breaks/ or disconnected.

    x 2 , it defaults to the fully open when tension is released from the cable.
