Lets just say the 575's neighbors, the XR's,
that live just behind them,
have had a couple more problems than
either of the engines have had.
On your question on sucking out the oil from
I suppose you could rig up something to do it.
The problem is, in the rear, it's not in the most user
friendly place to deal with.
The fill/ level plug is on the side.
The distributor is right behind it.
1. getting the oil in could be a mess.
2. Knowing if you got enough oil back in could
be a problem..since it's hard to even see the fill/ level plug.
Take off the belt, disconnect the fuel line,
throttle cable, breather vent hose,
unplug the IAT, TPS, and MAP sensors,
unbolt the supercharger from the intake,
andremove the supercharger.
Then you can dump the oil
out of it rather easy.
Thanks JaaayTeee........ removeing the Blower sounds like the best way then......I would rather be sure that I got it all out and get the right amount in.
I also had drive problems with my 575's. The XR's the were paired with my 2002 42 fountain gave me more trouble than the motors.
wow Johnny this is a Jump from a Boat like mine.
you keeping the Senza for a dingy LOL.
What's up Brian......congrats on the new born.... No the Senza is up for sale and the new Sonic is a wedding present to myself.........getting married April 28th........ I am joining the club
I have a pair of 575's, at 230 hours one of the blowers started to sound different thatn the other one. Sort of a howl instead of a wine like a health one should sound. Took it in for the pros to listen to and they were surte it was bearings. I believe the front was worse than the rear. They did both bearings , roters were fine.
Based on that I assume you can tell if the bearings are week by listening . Just goose the motor when in newtral with the pad up and if one sound more like a howl than a wine, get to the shop.
Mine are 2001 vintage
JohnnyD - That boat was a friend of mine's. It was well taken care of and you got the deal of the century - He was just done with boating.
