Best model they make. Congrats.

Just a tip - I had that same motor grenade on me because of a $50 oil sensor in the on motor oil tank. I don't know if it's common or not, but I beleive you can test it by moving the float in the tank while the engine is running and it should sound a low oil alarm. Might be worth a look.

Otherwise that was one of the better 2 stroke motors I've ran.

Congrats again.

    Ali, did the pump fail on the oil reservoir or did you just forget to add oil in the reservoir and the alarm forgot to warn you?

    The float switch sensor failed. It kept telling the engine there was plenty of oil in the on board tank and there wasn't. Kaboom.

    I believe to test it you just hold it down while the engine is running. It should alarm and retard the ignition.

    Maybe not all that common, but worth a look IMO. Blew up a really nice motor because of a $150 part.

    I know in the past they've had some problems with the pump not mixing the oil and your motor blows up! On one of my old boats I disconnected the pump and mixed my oil with the gasoline. My mechanic told me it's not a question of failure but when it will fail. Now I keep the reservoir full every trip and I pray the pump doesn't go out!

    Not to go too far off topic on the oil level sensor: Mine stuck in the low position, so the alarm kept going off (and power was cut) even though we knew we had plenty of oil. What I found is that the shaft that the float ring slides on can become a bit gunked up. It is very easy to pull the assembly out of the tank and clean the shaft. This really should be checked a few times per year just to be safe. The tank is not the main large capacity tank, but the smaller tank mounted on the Port side top of the motor - under the cowling.

    I had a 2310 as well and agree that it is a great platform. I miss not having it for solo or short trips anymore. You will have many years of enjoyment with it. Here is to another great season ahead!
