I have a slow drive oil leak coming from the water intake on my lower unit. Any ideas? It all leaked out in about 4 while weeks sitting on the trailer. I've refilled it and run it a bit. Runs fine.

Hello, if there are any signs of a leak, the drive needs to be re-sealed. Seal kits available from Sierra. Cool

Id like to add. When oil is coming from the water intake its from the oil seal under the water pump or the shift shaft seal or both.But mike is right if one seal is leaking change them all.Dvddave
