Re: Honda water transfer pump

Smiley Happy   I`m Norwegian and apparently part Bohemian so I drained the bulk of the gas by holding it upside down and possibly the oil fill plug or check plug  was loose letting out just enough that the oil level was too low.  I know there was oil in it before I started spray season, but there`s no "high low normal" marks on the dip stick.  But rather than pull the jets out of the carb or pull the coil out to test, I filled the hell out of it with 10W-30 and run out a sensible amount after I saw that was the problem.   A low oil sensor is a good feature on those engines, because they are low on the totem pole and literally run hard and put away wet every day.
