    Can I disconnect the oil tank and just mix my gas...... When I tilt this motor the oil tank leaks.... Very bad engineering on the oil stopper...... Just s rubber plug not a screw on cap.
    Thanks

    That depends on if the motor is a two stroke or a four stroke.

    I don’t see why not if it’s a two stroke. I know one of the guys at work did the same thing on a mercury 250 because the oil pump went out and he almost blew up his motor.

    Ok this is where I'm going with this to start with.....safely......ordering a new cap.
    After all this is a 1988 motor. Hopefully a fresh rubber plug will work. Maybe with a light touch of grease....
    Thanks for the replies... Ha.. it's only January and I'm thinking bout sailing..
