    Default 1 step forward and 2 back

    went out to check on the boat with my uncle, uncovered it and checked it out. we looked at the transom area and noticed some oil sitting around. took it out on sunday and it ran strong, had oil dripping out of the breathers so i ordered some baffles for the valve covers (thanks moroso ). anyway, i noticed its only on the passenger side, i have the dipstick and oil drain line on that side. hopefully its one of those because i am knee deep into this and have less than a month before our trip to the river. hopefully once this is done and taken care of this project will be complete. any suggestions fellas? and i am PRAYING its not the oil pan because i dont even want to think of the labor cost let alone the price for a new pan!

    Check the bolt on the oil drain hose where it screws into the pan. Does it have the nylon washer? tighten it up and see if that is the problem. Is the end of the hose hooked up high under the back of the boat or laying in the bilge. The ends of those hoses are not a tight seal. If it is laying on the bottom hook it up high under the back of the boat and see if you still get the oil in the bilge area. My guess is it is not the dipstick tube.

    A lot of guys run them. Dooley pan or not. Makes it really easy to drain the oil.

    The question about the dooley pan was unrelated to the question about the hose drain. Dooley pan are notorious for leaking at the dipstick.

    But I'll try to remember that about the drain hose

    Really? Mine has never leaked from the dipstick. Then again I dont have a stock dipstick, i run a lokar deal. Maybe that seals different.

    The problem isn't the dipstick its self, it the stock GM triangle piece the dipstick tube is in. Its soldered on to the pan. Sometimes, not always, but sometimes when Dooley welds the pans the solder melts enough to leak oil. I fought a leak on one for weeks trying to find it. Finally put a little pressure in the engine with a shop vac backwards and sprayed the entire engine down with bubbles. All the way around the triangle piece looked like a bubble machine. I am not the only one that has had the problem by a long shot.
