the vents Phil mentioned are indeed for the intake of cooling water, the little "pinhole" I was referring to, like I mentioned if I remembered correctly was for "case ventilation"

the hole is normal. The oily exhaust is also normal if its been idled a lot. A motor doesnt need 50:1 ratio at idle, and the unburned fuel/oil will run out of the exhaust. When you run it in the water, there wont be any residue due to the higher rpm.
