Default What is this in my Arima SC?

Looks like some sort of oil reserve but not connected to anything? I’m running a 50-hp Honda outboard.

Would like to remove and use the space...any reason to leave in?

Looks like the reservoir for a auto-oiler. Is your motor a 2-stoke or 4 ?
Maybe the previous owner has abandon it, because they now mix the oil directly into the gas tank. Just a thought.

Have a 4-stroke that replaced the original 2-stroke...

Honker 1 is correct. This is an oil tank for a 2 stroke, probably a kicker. if you have 4 strokes you don't need it.
