Default **urgent scr-3000 urgent**

My SCR3000 with twin 5.0 engines has a lube leak in the rear of the starboard engine. My mechanic says that it the fitting at the end of the lube tubing. He says it's a plastic fitting behind the lube monitor that needs to be replaced.
Anyone experience this? Can it be repaired without hauling?
I need to get this fixed as soon as possible. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I would have asked the mechanic and taken his advice... I have no clue what lube leak you have.

From what is being said the plastic lube fitting that passes through the transom assembly. I have heard of this before and the boat needs to be pulled to replace it. Did he quote the job?

I don't think it can be accessed well enough without pulling the engine.

I replaced mine without taking the engine out but had to remove one manifold and riser and trim tabs pump to get an access to it on my 2500 scr with 5.7. Even with that access was very limited and having exceptionally long arms helped. Hopefully it will be easier in your case. If its the same problem as mine the boat will have to be hauled as the fitting actually slides in from the outside of the transom. There's other part connected to the end of the hose which snaps on through hall fitting which I believe could be replaced with boat in the water but I don't think those go bad.

Longer part goes through transom and got the hose attached on the outside to outdrive and shorter is connected with lube reservoir on the inside.

It's going to depend on where it is leaking from. There is the possibility that you might need to haul the boat and pull the engine.
