    951 oil lines popped off? 1998 GTX LTD

    Removed the top end a year ago to have it bored 10 over on each side. Never had time to put back together till now. I noticed that both oil lines on the top of the pump are off(I never took them off) and some oil leaked out. I found the metal clamps that go around the lines laying on the bottom of the hull. Anyone ever see two oil lines pop off on their own while sitting? How can that even happen? Sabotage?

    There is check valves on the corresponding oil fittings. Use something like
    a mighty vac set-up for pressure testing and test the fittings for a clog.

    3 psi is a normal check valve setting.

    I checked them 25 hrs ago. I could check them again I suppose. Even if they were both clogged(doubtful both would clog at the same time), it hadn't even been started. Where could the pressure come from?

    I have never seen oil lines pop off like that.

    The only ones Ive seen shrink tight and pop off were yamaha 800/1200. I'm guessing sabotage.
