They asked me about overheating. It did overheat once last spring, but I turned it off, got towed in, and took it straight to the dealer. Ended up with a new water pump. Never ran it overheated, and it was on freshwater at the time too. No telling what happened when the original owner had it.

And it is a saltwater series, so yes it has closed cooling.

agree ? Oil Pressure 40, Compression 160. High will go to low if cracked.

Sorry to hear about the motor..... I'm not a big fan of our dealer here in So. Cal. Was curious where you too the boat for a second opinion and how you liked them?

Thanks,

Joe

I took it to Boostpower in Newbury Park north of LA, and they did fantastic. It is a bit of a drive, but they have a really impressive shop, they know their stuff, and pay attention to all the little details. They normally do high performance boats, but did not have a problem working on a v-drive.

Yeah, I know it's old but it describes my situation to a 'T'. When I Googled "low oil pressure on LY6 engine", this was the only thing that came up. You can imagine my nausea while reading it and then it just ended with, "I'll see what the second shop says..."

The guy I bought it from kept it in the harbor for at least part of the time he owned it--I guess there are limits to what a "Saltwater Series" will take...
This should answer your question... until you open it up and take a look you won't know...

Good luck..
