Got your pic..

There's a weep hole in the cowling at the top of that streak.
Looks like a hard water line (calcium deposit) from a continuous drip from that weep hole.
You might have a small leak on a hose connection under the cowling.

is that the washout connector for a water hose?

yea thats where you hook up the hose to flush the motor
then i would say it definitely has something to do with water leaking out and drying on the engine cover leaving a calcium deposit trail. try checking to see if all connections are tight and that the washer is still in the hose connector

alright thanks....any suggestions on how to get rid of the white streak?
any type of bathroom cleaner that wipes out soap scum and lime deposits.... basically all you have are mineral deposits and anything that will take of that should work. once cleaned i'd give it some wax.... should make cleaning easier next time around ;) good luck :cool:
