    Hey all. I have a 2002 Ultra 21' with a 496 Mag and Bravo One. I've been banging my head trying to figure out why it takes on water. At first I thought the rear vents were taking on water via the wake when I come off plane but I confirmed that is not the case today by temporarily blocking them...

    I had a fairly good leak from shaft log last summer, checked the bolts and everyone of them was loose. Tightened them up but 2 are stripped and I still have a very small leak in that area. I'm going to pull it up this weekend and fix it, what do you guys use to seal it back down? Or does it...

Now I have gear oil leaking out of the water intakes on the side of the new lower unit. my setup is a 1989 bravo 1. The new lower unit has the extra oil passage that...

    I have a 455 Apollo Jet Boat. The motor is strong and has no issues except that it leaks oil but the only after it has been run. Meaning I cannot see/find any leaks while the boat is in use, no matter how long I run it for. In addition, the leaking has never, after dozens of tests occurred...

    Well, I definitely have a pool leak. Lose an inch was water a day (even on the cooler days). Water is not bypassing to the backwash drain either. I did the die test to all of my inlet and return lines and could not find anything. I could also not check the skimmer line because if it a...

    Okay, so I picked up a cylinder leakage tester, (OTC 5609), seems simple enough, TDC and pressurize to 100 psi and observe the second gauge to determine leakage. I think my tester may be broken. First i found out that my timing indicator was off just a bit when the engine rotated. Got to TDC and...
