I just test drove our new (to us) 2005 Mobius LSV, and have some questions about the v-drive and the drivetrain in general, hopefully someone can give me some insight!
- When the boat is in idle, the oil pressure warning light turns on, saying not to drive over 1,200 rpm etc etc... as soon as I engage the transmission the light turns off and stays off through acceleration. I have heard that this is normal, is this true? I looked in the archives and couldn't find information on this topic, maybe I just don't know how to use the search function. It's a Zenith Hurth transmission.
- On acceleration, the boat seems to vibrate quite a bit until it gets on plane... once on plane it is not near as bad, and it isn't noticeable when you slow down or are idling around. I checked the prop and it looks to be in perfect shape, the blades aren't bent anywhere that I can tell. Is there a chance it is out of alignment, or the shaft is bent? How can I tell?
That's it really, for now anyway. Thanks in advance for all the help guys!
