    Virage 2002 leaking oil in hull

    Hi, I replaced the steering cable last fall just before removing the ski from the lake. After replacing the cable, the ski wouldn't start or idle without giving it some throttle. Messing with the throttle cable by the engine, I discovered moving it's position in the ski controlled the idle. I'm guessing I need to re-route the cable? Suggestions?

    More importantly after just one ride, a good amount of oil leaked into the hull, Do you think these two things can be related? I've looked around the oil reservoir and cables and nothing looks obvious.

    There are no mechanics here in Nova Scotia who will work on this machine and I'm not a mechanic either.

    Any suggestions or troubleshooting procedures would be greatly appreciated. I'm putting the ski back in the water in a couple of weeks.

    Thank,
    Doug

    The oil sending unit cap was leaking on mine. Would only leak if I raise the nose. I took a O-ring and a Stainless Steel hose clamp around the plug and tank flange. Did this when I had the tank out and left it standing on end for 4 days no leaks.
