Mariner 150 Oil Leak
Have a bit of a problem.... Just got the new boat, with our old engine on it(Mariner 150 2-stroke Optimax). Apart from a few outfitting errors, i have one issue. The oil reserve resevoir inside the cowling is leaking oil from around the stopper at the top (pressurised oil system). This is not the first time we've had this problem, and it has been with us on and off through four annual services by different companies. The last people who serviced the engine did the thing up so tight i can't take it off without breaking the plastic, and it still leaks!
Has anyone else encoutered this?
Will sikaflex/silicone bond to HDPE and PVC, and can i use it inside the cowling(heat) i'm thinking of just sealing over the whole lot.
