It's been about a year since the boat has been started (1987 prostar 190). I just started it up tonight after re-building carb, and replacing fuel pump. Once it started, the alarm continued to sound and the oil pressure guage was maxed out. The oil level is within the specified range. Any tips on what this may be? I plan to change the oil tomorrow....any chance this may solve the problem? Could it be a faulty sensor? Is there anything I can do to address this?

I appreciate any feedback, as it is always helpfu.

Thank you. Daryl

I would think it was the oil pressure sending unit.
