Water is pouring out around the starter and i was losing oil pressure. not sure whats up but gonna yank the motor and start taking it apart. Looks like thats how im going to be spending my 4th
Was there water in the bilge? Sometimes the flywheel will make it look like water is coming out oth the front of the starter when the motors running.Water is pouring out around the starter and i was losing oil pressure. not sure whats up but gonna yank the motor and start taking it apart.

No water jackets within a starter bolts reach. Maybe the freeze plugs on the back of the block are leaking. Check the sending unit for the oil pressue gauge they leak. Oil pressure loss from a leak is not likely. What kinda oil pressure does it run amd whats it drop to?Thanks.. Thats all the plan... However i got a bunch of oil in my bildge. i think im losing pressure from a leak..
Do the starter bolts in a SBC pass into the water jacket of the block? It looked like water was coming from that location. I checked the fly weel and it did not seem like it was throwing the water. The water in the bildge simply was not deep enough to make contact with the flywheel.
I bet a freeze plug came out and the heated water washed out the overflow greese that had accumulated inside the bell housing from the jet drive's front bearing - giving the impression of an oil leak. Your oil pressure sounds fine.
I would probably take the handle off that ball valve for obvious reasons
