    New rebuild on rxt 215 oil issue

    Just got my ski out the shop it starts but taps and just shuts off. How do I check to see if the oil pump is working also the guy did not put a oil filter in it . Should the housing for the oil filter be filled with oil? Does the pump need.to be bled?

    Wow, mechanic sent it out with no oil filter? Id be pissed...

    The oil filter housing drains when you turn the motor off, hold about a teaspoon that I suck out for good measure during an oil change. You have to install an oil pressure gauge on the oil pressure port to check the oil pressure, engine has to be cranking or running...

    No bleeding, nothing silly like that should be involved, maybe he didn't put oil in it? I mean he left the filter out...
