John Smith: Your a legend rusty thanks for the video
BigWater59: Isn't your VRO your fuel pump also?
Kickingtheirbasstv: You rpms was way to high blow the motor running that high on start up
Harry Bevan: I have just disconnected the VRO unit so am not sure what oil fuel mixture I should use
Stephen Melnichuk: Could this procedure work on a 1986 90 hp Johnson?
Michael Marsland: Thanks! Followed, found and disconnected with no trouble
Wide Open Life: Did you reclaim the last of the oil??
And what fuel oil ratio do you run it at now?
alejour: Hi. It's been 4 years since this video. How is the motor running now? I've been thinking on disconnecting my VRO for some time now because is putting up too much oil and my plugs are getting swamped. Always wandered about performance in the long run. Cheers and great video.
Charles Otwell: Thank you for useful info.
brian briggs: how do I change a water pump on a 93 70hp evinrude
Rusty Stainless: The two wires are sheathed, so you will only be able to confirm their colour when you can look at the ends at the connecting point. It will be easier to find it if you undo the tank bracket so that you can lift the tank to look under it easily. (It does have the motor mounted oil tank?) The sensor will just look like a sheathed wire plugged into a circular mounting point. Once you lift the oil tank it will be either the oil pipe or the sensor wire. Just follow wire and unplug it.
Ronald Evans: I can not find a light blue/black wire combination wire on my 1998 mercury 60hp Bigfoot outboard motor, oil tank or oil pump.
Rusty Stainless: Yes sensor is mounted under tank. But it is a little fiddlly/fragile so be very careful. Maybe try disconnecting at the other end, it has a light blue/black wire combination.
Of course this why I created the video, so people would not have to go on long goose chases.....
Ronald Evans: Yes, the alarm sounds when engine cold
I tried disconnecting the temp sensor
The oil tank is full
I did not check the oil tank sensor. Is it in the tank?
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP
Rusty Stainless: Different to Johno. Oil pump seperate from fuel pump. Is alarm sounding when engine cold - maybe faulty temp sensor, or check oil tank has enough oil, if it has - maybe faulty oil tank sensor. If you want to go premix then put some premix in fuel tank. Follow oil line from oil tank to oil pump. Disconnect oil line and plug with bolt and clamp. The oil sensor wires are light blue/black and have bullet style connections. Locate sensor wire on oil tank but disconnect them at other end. Rusty.
Ronald Evans: Can you help me in disconnecting a VRO system on a 1998 bigfoot mercury 60hp outboard? I do not believe it is working, the alarm is sounding and is not smoking.
Ronald Evans: Is disconnecting a VRO system on a 1998 mercury 60hp outboard the same?
Rusty Stainless: Yeah there is a big difference - no more problems - just goes and keeps going! ;)
eastsidesigns1: sounds like it wasn't getting oil and running on dry gas. you just run mix now? no difference in the way it runs? thanks for the vid!
Darkskate12: Dude get your eye-glasses on, there is coming water out of da engine :-DDD
