Curious how many people out there have made the dumb mistake I made sunday.. Was in the middle of an oil change and what not on my mud motor, got called out to the golf course to help someone out, came back 30 minutes later to continue working on the motor. I greased up a few zyrts and figured I would run the motor for a little bit. Well heard some squeeling and then a big pop. I forgot to put oil in and the big pop was something putting a hole in the block, a good sized one too. So a new one is on the way to marsh monster to be put in this week. A pretty costly mistake!

Also can't make the same mistake with oil again, they wont start if the oil is below a certain level.
