    Default 1985 90 HP Evinrude VRO - Crazy Question

    Hi Everyone,
    Hey I have a 1985 90 HP Evinrude VRO, the vro system has been disabled and now i mix my gas and oil. Here is my very crazy question:
    The outboards shaft above the lower unit has two holes that are obviously for exhaust, should they also be spitting water or do I have a blown seal somewhere?
    I have attached a link that will show the two holes I am talking about, there is also an attached JPG.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Some water should spit out at idle -------------------If you were on skis behind the boat you would see more water coming out of those 2 holes.
