Suzuki df25 help

Hi all
I have just bought a Suzuki df 25 and when transporting it on its side the oil leaked out and was told that I would have to clean the carb and piston chamber, I was wondering if anyone has the workshop manual to show me how it comes apart.
Cheers Kevin

Hi all
Need a bit of advice on what to do next, when transporting the outboard on its side as per manual at the end on my journey I had a pool of oil and around the engine after taken off the cover, taken the spark plugs out and the side that was nearest the floor is covered in oil. Is it OK to just start the engine or is there anything else I need to do before starting it.
Cheers kevin

Just check oil and top up if reqd.

I'd double check there was no misunderstanding about which side should be up when transporting. Then to see what's what I'd take the covers off then put the outboard onto a couple of trestles or similar to replicate it being transported so you'd be able to see the source of the oil and go from there.

I would stand up for a few days take Plugs out pull starter slowly till at top dead centre and suck oil out as much as possible then pull starter fast to see if any spirits out, check oil level replace plugs and start it will smoke a bit might need plugs cleaning in between and after long cotton buds might be helpful. That's what I would do

Cheers

Thank you for quick reply, the oil seam to come from the breather hose which is connected to the top of the engine and the dip stick shows half way up. Ah also checked manual and it was the right way round but need to put a block of wood under engine block.
Cheers kevin

I see engine was dipping down a nice piece of high density foam would be good the sort they use in canoes for buoyancy no marks then on the cover.

Cheers

Thank you for the reply
Yes will need to get some thick foam for transporting, but how do you know when an outboard is top dead centre and also what is the best stuff to clean the water channels inside the outboard
Cheers Kevin

just put a pencil in the spark plug hole turn the engine very slowly watching the pencil rise to the top soon as it starts to drop stop, you might even see any oil
