help with my FL350 honda Odyssey

Post by marty722 » Sun Nov 05, 2006 6:36 pm

First where can I find a manuel? I just got a 1985 oddy and heres the problem. After running it for a few mimutes this milky stuff come out from where the oil dip stick is on the back. Its a yellow cap that has a little hole in the top. Why is it coming out and why is it milkey? What kind of oil goes in there and how do I change it. It seems to run for a few minutes and it starts leaking the milkey oil then quits.... Can anyone help me with this please? Thank you so much for the help if you respond.

Start by calling Randy ay Odyssey Salvage Monday morning @ 913-856-6639. He’s a heck of a guy. If he’s not to busy he’ll answer every question in the world you have. He’s also this close to becoming an ASA sponsor so tell him you got his number from the ASA BBS.

After a few minutes of driving it or at idle?

My guess is water got in the gearbox, over filling it. So when you start the Odyssey, the gearbox starts turning and heating up the oil/water mixture, the mixture expands and come out the top. AGAIN JUST A GUESS.

The best oil to use I have been told is Motul “2-stroke gearbox oil SAE10W40 Technosynthese” Where the yellow cap is there is a seam where the two halfs of the case join. Follow that seam down and under the gearbox to find the drain screw. Drain the oil out there. PUT THE SCREW BACK IN. Fill with a quart of the above mentioned oil. Watch the dip stick to see if it is full or not. There is also a check bolt on the gearbox. remove this screw and let the oil out there. Once at or below this screw is the proper level.

The oil water mixture COULD be putting a load on the gears, but the gearbox & the engine are two totally different pieces connected by a belt. Pull the plug and tell me what color the plug is? :-k Is it milky white too? Either way when you pick up the oil pick up a couple of plugs too. :wink:


Things to do...
Call Randy Order a Manual tell him you got the number from the ASA message board. Tell him your gear oil is milky ask him what to use to flush your gearbox out.
Buy two quarts of the above mentioned Oil and two plugs, and what ever Randy tells you to use to flush out your gearbox.
Flush out your gear box. Put in the above mentioned oil to it’s appropriate level.
Change the spark plug.
Start it and see what happens.

GOOD LUCK Let us know what happens

There's a lot of Ody sites. How hard is milky oil? Should I have alo told him to scrape off ALL the rust that is on there and start saving up for a new seat becuse if his current seat isn't already smelly and crunchy it will be soon? :?

A page for FL350's is easy.

CALL RANDY

Sloppy is right on. Milky oil = water in the oil.

Look for source of water ingress & correct.

Drain, flush with fresh oil, refill with fresh oil.
