Hi
My 150 yamaha had it's oild tank removed when i bought it so have been running it on pre- mix
been great for over a year run used frequently
however i now have an oil alarm going off. the oil tank sensor was cable tied upside down even tried dsiconecting it but it still goes off
only when in forward though ok to rev it in nuetral and in reverse.
i cannot figur this out is there a way to correctly disconect the oil system so the alrm what go off and shut the engine down
thanks
Andy

"the only 2 oil sensors are the one on the motor mounted tank and the one on the reservior mounted in the boat. the proper way to disconnect the oil system is to unplug the hose from the motor mounted tank from the oil pump and plug it, leaving the tank full of oil for the sensor."
