    Default "It is normal to have oil come

    "It is normal to have oil come out of the exhaust in the center of the prop on a 2 stroke, especially if you idled for a while before shutting it down. It is NOT normal for oil to come out of the gap between the prop and the gearbox; this indicates the failure of one or more seals in the gearcase.

    It is a good idea to post the year and hp of the motor when asking a question here."
