Oil dripping from Prop.

After winterising my Yamaha today, I noticed oil coming out of the prop once it had been resting for a short while.

Is this normal??

it looks like it running toooooo rich,or running on idle for way too long. how much winterising oil did you put down it? 40;1- 50;1 should clear it up and a damn good thrash to clear it all through!

If its a 2 stroke and you have squirted plenty of fogging oil into the bores, then I would say its ok as the fogging oil will go down the exhaust ports.

But I am no expert.

Phew!

It's a 2 stroke auto lube.

It was run in neutral for about 5 mins in a bucket, I then killed it removed the plastic cover from the carb air intake, restarted it and sprayed some fogging oil in to each carb until it stalled.

Thanks guys.

It's a sad day "winterising day" and for a minute I thought it was going to get a little worse.

Quite normal on any 2 strokes engine, inertia doing it's job...Place a pan under prop.

Happy Boating
