Ran the boat on the hose tonight and noticed some oil dripping out, not sure its lower unit oil or just running rich 2 stroke oil leaking a little from exhaust? It's blackish color and smells like 2 stroke oil I think.


Anyone ever see this? Canceling my trip in case it's prop seal leaking. 2000 Yamaha 130 2 stroke.

Just bought the boat and I don't think it's been run lately, it smells like the burnt oil. I don't think it's lower unit oil. It's hard to get the screw out of the lower unit so I'm letting her soak over night to losen up. So I can check color of unit oil to be sure. Thanks guys :)

2 Stroke oil. My old Johnson 48 spl did the same thing. I replaced LU seals and after pulling it apart I was like dang! Better safe than sorry. Nothing to worry about plus if it was a bad lower unit seal it would probably be more milky than black and stink real bad.
