    Running 215 motor with no oil filter

    Friends sea doo jet boat with the 215 sank from a as yet unknown leak. I got the water out of everything, and ran it hot and did the 1st oil change. My question is, the oil filter is full of water so it doesn't seem to make any sense to do multiple oil changes through that filter. I have no source for a new filter till Wednesday and don't like having it sit with crappy oil till then.

    So my question is, besides running unfiltered oil, will I cause any issues if I run the motor with out a filter in it till the oil is clean?

    Thanks!

    I would think the potential for damage because of water in the oil is greater than no oil filter so I would run it with no filter to flush the oil then do a last oil change with filter as soon as you can.

    you never want to try to clear an engine with water in the oil with a filter in the can anyhow. The water soaks the filter element and it collapses. No problem unless the bypass valve fails to open. When that happens iit is about as far from good as you want to get.

    When I get a yam or Kawasaki in shop that has sunk, they freak at the repair cost..as I have to change the filter quite a few times..and dem things ain't cheap. On a Seadoo no problem, just add a new filter at the end of the work. As it is it takes on average 20-30 quarts of oil to clear out the milkshake.

    You want to run the engine as soon as possible to get the water out of there.

    If you doo 1 good oil change then back the boat into the water on the trailer and let it run for 20+ min it will bake the remaining water out.
    It's ok to have a milk shake oil to start and by the 20 min mark its clear.
    No need to waist 20+ quarts of oil.

    But it does need to run ASAP...

    depends on how much water is in there. to much water and you lose lubrication.
    I would change the oil at least one time before riding it.

    edit.... crap I need to learn to read.... lol

    I don't think you totally understand. Milky oil can swell the filter and collapse it. So there won't be a filter at all anyway, and you can actually cause more damage with collapsed filter than no filter.

    I understand, but any particles present will be sent through the system causing untold damage.
    I prefer:
    Pull milky oil out. Use new oil (cheap is you prefer) and remove milky filter and pour fresh oil down, remove supercharger, squirt fresh oil around in there, remove head cover, squirt new oil everwhere.
    Without starting, pull out oil.
    Fill with new with new filter, start and check. Shouldn't have a lot of water. Repeat.
    It's overkill, but it'll work.

    I had minimal ingestion once and used 12gts and two filters to fix.

    Wow you guys love to waste money and oil.

    I've done this many many times with 1 good oil change and then back the ski on the trailer into the water and run for 20-30 min.

    No need for waste...
    Put a new filter in it after its clear...

    Just trying to share a little knowledge and save you some $$$ and time..
