Flat cam would contaminate the entire oiling system, no matter the capacity.

If an olds had been run with a small pan for any time in a jet boat, especially with no oil mods...it's injured

Hmmm, pretty broad statement.

Olds came in just about every jetboat in the 70's, ran for years, some still going to this day, trouble free. Stock oil pan and all. Including mine.

Guess it's about how it's driven, maintained and if rebuilt, how well it was done.

Cheers! :beer:

Wonder how all those olds engines got the rep they have!
Your boat/engine is an exception, or an even bigger miracle!

You never mentioned how often you use your boat, and how many hours your engine has... Doesn't count if your on the trailer for 364 days a year and and the one day it's out, was from no wake zone to the closest beach!

Glad your Olds is doing well! I'm always happy when folks succeed with olds engines!

Doesn't mean they never had problems and it also doesn't mean that the ones still going today haven't been rebuilt with bigger passages and a 12 qt pan. I had an olds with a stock pan and it burned bearings. Took it apart opened oil passages returning back to the cam put a 12qt pan and never had a problem 
But if it has a flat cam already like he's saying it's most likely due to lack oil returning to the cam don't you think

Hahaha, easy guys, easy!

Not the original owner, but guy I got it from was. Motor was rebuilt, but has been many many moons.

Boat's definitely not a trailer queen, by any means. Out almost every weekend, usually both days. Less then 20 minutes from home to being out on Elsinore. I don't drive like a grandma, but don't thrash it either.

I'm not saying a Olds engine doesn't have it's problems. By all means, I know they are prone to oiling problems, water pressure issues, water/oil contamination and don't like high RPMS. I know! I was just implying that just because it has a small oil pan, doesn't mean it automatically needs a rebuild.

That's never what I stated, or implied!

Oil pan suggestion was in addition to a number of other things known about the engine, wasn't it?

Lmao! "Many moons" I didn't think anyone else said that...

IMHO if the OP is looking to be ON the water soon and is on a budget, this isn't the best buy for him... I know there could be a perfectly good cheap fix for a rough running olds... Could simply be the timing, but I doubt it. Just my .02

I also replied to your other post. You can quickly check to see if the engine has a large capacity oil pan... If it doesn't, plan on an engine rebuild, AND additional parts that you will need to help support the oiling in the engine

Maybe I interpreted it wrong, or don't understand what your trying to say here?

If so, my bad  :thumbup:
