Problem fixed: Bad switch assembly (oil level sensor)

Had continuous alarm when engine is running. Looked at the maintenance manual for troubleshooting and followed the instructions that lead me to oil sensor. Removed oil Reservoir and empty oil into a container. Ordered the new sensor and when it arrived, I went to grab the oil container and noticed something funny inside. The freaking magnet that tells the sensor the oil level broke off. So I had to order a new oil tank too. Glad that Crowley Marine had it too. You might think that it was the oil tank, but remember that I troubleshoot it and it was no good per manual instructions. So bottom line I had a bad sensor and oil tank. Put it all back together and running good and no alarms.

Easy to navigate. I will buy again

Problem fixed: Oil alarm was on steady- falty oil tank float

Remove vowel, undo two bolts on top front of oil take, including a third one by the centre of the bottom side. Then pulled the oil tank out enough to remove the plastic oil tube, Including the sensor - 1 screw. You need to take a pin off the centre of an outer& inner grommet and install on the new tank. The 3rd bolt goes through the it. I then installed the new sensor, put on a zip strap around the oil tube connection and the just fasten it back into place with the 3 bolts... A Very easy job Best m

Problem fixed: The oil leaks and the trim drops

It is quite old, so it is necessary to replace the motor wiring, but the same kind can not be found in Japan? I am in trouble if I can not find it yet.

First time boat owner. Found the pictures of the outboard parts very helpful. Was able to diagnose correct part numbers and order what i needed. Delivery to australia was 1-2 weeks but all parts arrived together, not individually, very impressed.

Problem fixed: Low oil alarm

Low oil alarm was going off but there was plenty of oil in the tank. First bought an oil sensor but that did not fix it. Did more research and found out it was the oil tank. Ordered and installed new tank and problem solved!

Problem fixed: Oil leak from two stroke oil container and faulty two stroke low oil sensor/alarm

Removed the engine cover and identified the leak which was coming from the fixing screw position right on the original plastic die cast seam. Referred to correct schematic and ordered replacement parts. Removed lower covers to gain access to mounting points. Dismounted old oil tank and easily removed the mounting bushings and dip stick, rubber grommet etc. Fitted new parts to tank then installed before connecting clamps etc. All in all saved 50% of quoted price here in South Australia for an easy repair - all I needed to do was patiently wait for a week or so for the parts. Thanks Crowley Marine another job well done.

Problem fixed: oil level alarm on

Removed the oil holding tank, replaced the sensor in the bottom. This didn't fix my problem, but it was the first thing to check. The problem was the oil sensor on the block.

Ordered a new oil reservoir/tank for my Mercury outboard. Store answered my questions prior to my order so that I was sure to order the correct part for my engine. OUTSTANDING customer service and parts were exactly as described. Great savings!!!

Problem fixed: Low oil alarm / bad float

Replaced oil reservoir/tank because float and magnet separated and low alarm was constantly chirping. Repair was fairly simple, just a little messy. Hardest part was draining the oil from my existing tank without making puddles on the concrete.

Excellent business model, transaction was easy, fast and when I had a problem with my post office, you were just a key stroke away. Your my number one go to online company for my outboard needs. Thanks

I'm just a boat owner, not a technician, and find the detail in the exploded parts diagrams unequaled. It ensures you order the right part every time. I had a question on one repair and the reply was very helpful and prompt. Delivery has been on or before time on both occasions I have used Crowley Marine. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
