As it always happens - I was 25 miles from nowhere yesterday out of Seward when I got an engine alarm on my 1995 - 150hp Yahama 2 stroke.
After checking several things it was determined that the main oil tank pump was not pumping the oil up to the aux tank mounted on the engine. We ended up using an outboard hose and manually pumping the oil up to the aux tank (twice) to get back.
Question: Is this a common problem? I have never heard of anyone having any problems with these oil pumps on the Yahama systems? I have heard that some people have removed this tank system and just premix the
oil in the tank - any ideas or comments would be appreciated.
I always use the Yahama lube oil - so I know that's not he problem.
