2004 Wakesetter - Low Oil Pressure Surfing


Recommended Posts

paulhey

I searched the forum and found one brief reference to this, but wanted to see if there was any more to the discussion. 
 

2004 Wakesetter - when surfing, mainly when first starting, the oil pressure drops such that the alarm goes off. Once more on plane and/or if I have more weight up front, no issues. 
 

i read briefly something about an Indmar bulletin re: more oil when surfing. Not sure if that is the case. 
 

Oil level seems OK - up to 3rd hole on dipstick. No other issues. 
 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks!

Larry at Indmar once told me that boats with the older 350 GM engine, that are primarily used for surfing and listed to one side, should have the engine oil overfilled by 1 quart to prevent oil starvation.
