    Exclamation help with the other boat lol

    I need some help now and since you guys in the "jet boat" section are the most knowledgeable i thought i would ask you. I have an 86 bayliner capri with a 305 chevy engine and a volvo penta outdrive. i changed the oil about a month ago and have driven the boat for 6 hours since then. It runs like crap and seems like its getting way too much fuel. I've got around 130 - 135 lbs of compression all around so thats good but it has no power. A friend of mine pulled the dipstick and said "damn that smells like fuel" so we sucked out all of the oil (a little over 10 quarts of fuel/oil mixture)

    I know my carb is dumping a bunch of fuel but how would it get to the oil??

    Thanks!

    Past the rings...something like a Q-jet with a bad choke pull off.....it will still idle because the choke will open the throttle slightly..if it won't idle it probably has float level problem....

    All that extra fuel has to go somewhere and down it where it goes and anything that makes it past the first ring won't burn

    ya need to get it squared away pretty quick..all that fuel will just wreck the rings..if it hasn't already...fuel soaked rings can give a higher compression pressure because they could seal better...but there is one good thing..even if the rings are wrecked,
    everything else in the motor will be squeeky clean!

    Sell the boat and buy a real boat. Bayliners are the very bottom entry level boat. Sorry but it's the best advice i can give you.

    I think I realized the problem pretty quickly. The motor does have a lot of blow-by because when its running and warm there is a lot of smoke coming out of the valve cover breathers so i was thinking that the motor needs a rebuild. Its a Quadrajet and when out of the water it runs great, idles great and everything. In the water it idles perfectly but won't get anywhere past 2000 rpm....won't even get the boat up on plane. Yesterday (before we noticed the fuel in the oil) we put a different carb and it ran a little better. Do you think with an oil change and that different carb it should run great now? haha

    Being a bayliner doesnt really have much to do with the engine problem he's having though...
