There is usualy an annoying oil leak from the starting crank. It comes from oil being thrown up from the gear box and because the engine is sitting at an angle in the hull it just drips out from the shaft....just enough to make you want to keep wiping it. To stop this machine a groove for an O ring in the end of the shaft housing.....no more leaks.
