Or the slot at the bottom of the distributor busted. There's a few more parts involved. These two are quick and easy solutions that don't require pulling the engine.

Just wishful thinking.......
It has the Chevy 350 in it.

is that the carb, throttle body, Multi port fuel injection, or the LS1 corvette?

carb and throttle body look similar, kind more of a traditional engine with a carb on top, MPI won't have a carb on it, and I would imagine the corvette would have the big plastic cover with corbette blasted all over it.


I checked the inmar site and the manual but it doesn't say the horse for each engine option. Maybe one of the dealer guys can answer if your engine has the brass oil pump gear.

It is the multi port fuel injection. And I don't think it is ****ed. As soon as I heard it I shut it down and the machanic I took it too hooked it up to the water and as soon as he heard it he said CUT IT OFF. He said that I caught it in time and that I hadn't done any futhure damage. You don't hear any clunking noise in the bottom, you just hear the clicking of the lifters.

I am also very impressed with her knowledge of engines.

For what is is worth, I had a car that I was trying to drive into the ground and had the lifters dry many times and that thing still kept running, so all hope is not lost.
But still, it needs looked into very carefully.

I see you bought this boat just 5 weeks ago. Was it a dealer or private owner?

I would hate to think they would have sold you a boat that had a known problem without disclosing it to you.

Well I think it is a %50/%50 shot. Most of the time you will not see a oil pump just go bad........ My guess would be a spun bearing. It could be the pump shaft. or that the pick up on the pump came off!!!!!!!! I would drop the pan and take a look.
