Mariner 60HP 2 Stroke ELPTO Smokes huge on Initial Start

I just decided the season in the UK is nearly here so went out to get my 4.5 m rib ready. I started the 60hp mariner 2 stroke and the amount of smoke was incredible and there was clearly blue 2 stroke oil coming out of the exhaust. Below is a video about 30 seconds after start up and then one later after it had run for about 60 - 80 seconds. Also some pics of the oil on the ground.

It seems to have cleared now and no oil is coming out and also far far less smoke but it does smoke somewhat when I throttle it up.

Do people think this was just an initial start up issue after 6 months of being laid up or do you think I may have an issue with the oil injection pump or fuel pump

Pics and video below

Smokey after about 30 - 40 seconds from start up



After running for about 80 seconds very little smoke



Pics of the oil in the exhaust and on the ground

This is it running in a tub...Ö. It still smokes quite a lot if I pull up the fast runner but It did that last year. I am wondering now if it is OK

Found this on You Tube seems to smoke as much as mine. Perhaps it was just an initial start up thing. I think I need to get it out on the water for a proper test. It is quite hard in a tank or on muffs especially with a 2 stroke

Yes but all that oil that came out initially is still concerning me

Well your getting oil so it's not going to sezee up you should get alarms if you have a problem I know some take the pump out and go premix. Personally I would run it may be refurb the oil pump

I have bought a second hand fuel and oil pump from ebay so have one in hand. I think I need to give it a proper test on the water first. As you say more oil is better than not enough

RIBase
It's normal. The old fuel was probably in the carb fuel bowls. Get it out on a run and open her up. New fuel and enjoy the season.
