I thought I had oil leak from prop shaft but upon inspection shaft seals were not leaking but had bit of oil on bottom of casing is there another seal 20hp mercy


Three more seals. One on the shift shaft, another under the water pump and one more at the bottom of the engine on the main drive shaft. There is also a large o - ring on the carrier. Chances are the shift shaft seal is leaking.

Hi, Glenn usual suspects are "shift shaft seal", engine cover gasket, drive shaft boot gasket,etc for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere $0 you can download another one.

The leak seems to be coming from the shaft holding the pulley


Presuming you are talking about an oil leak from behind a pulley? All shafts as they exit the engine, have an oil seal fitted in the case and supply a tight seal to the shaft, if oil is leaking the seal is worn and needs replacing. depending on what the pulley is driving (cam belt), it could be a big job.

Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    Hi, Anonymous for this situation I would take the bike back to you dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry then politely demand satisfaction. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

    Rear main seal leak


    Hi,

    If somebody told you that you have a main seal leak what they meant was the round seal that is around the circumference of the output shaft of the crank. This same output shaft is basically hooked up to the transmission, or through to the transimission through a clutch. Well after some time, the round seal, it looks something like a flat donut, leaks. Imagine stretching a small spring around a shaft of steel and wrapping the spring in rubber. It will stop the oil from leaking along the shaft and out of the engine. After wear and tear, it needs to be replaced.

    If this is the case, well, given that you have not said what type of vehicle you have, you would need to either pull the engine out or drop or pull out the transmission to get at the shaft and replace the $10 seal part. A lot of work for a small item but it will continue to leak until of course you run out of oil and ruin the motor.

    I hope this helps somewhat.
