Default 1996 28 h.p. Evenrude question

I just bought a 14ft side counsel with a 28 h.p. evenrude, I ran the motor for about 5 seconds when I got it home and now I notice what looks like oil dripping out of the exhaust. Is this something to be concerned about?

That would be normal for a 2 stroke engine to have..

Yes sir..and while sitting in church this morning..i thought ..i was wrong..that would be a valve issue..if it was a ring issue..it would be smoking...

Being a 2 cycle ..it can happen as Phil said.

It would be for a cooling water vent. These are located in a couple of places on the motor. You can actually see the top one venting when the motor is running.. On the bigger motors when hooked up to a garden hose you can see 3 to 4 different water vents. They are made that way to help keep your motor cooled off.

I also fogot to mention... Do Not Run IT Out Of The Water unless you have a garden house hooked up to it. Even for just a short time can cause it to over heat and also mess up your impella. The impella runs off your water pump to push the water threw..
