    I'll pull the gas tank and check for wear. The oil tank is loose. I can move it back and forth. I don't think there is anything holding the oil tank in place except some black substance (glue?). It must be missing. The battery bracket is missing too.
    This might have to wait till spring. It's getting too cold here to work on it.

    I need a -1 button for this one

    Love it. Legend oil smells sooooo good.

    I don't mind having a little extra oil in the crankcase.

    The extra room under the hood from eliminating the oil tank is nice.

    Don't need to worry about the oil sender seal leaking.

    Don't need to worry about the oil hoses.

    Don't have any oil in the bottom of my hull from any of the ^^^^ issues

    And I don't need to worry about piston failure due to an oil pump, filter or hose issue.

    Simpler design is always better

    You have your reasons and I have mine.
