    Oil leaking out of exhaust?

    We have a '95 spx and oil/black shoot is leaking out of the exhaust and it is hard to start. any idea what this is? how can it be fixed? It smoke pretty bad when it is started for the first 30 seconds or so.

    That is a typical problem for a Rotary Valve engine.

    Either the inner crank seals or the cases themselves are leaking oil from the Rotary Valve Shaft Oil Bath into the cases. The affect most pronouned when the boat has sat for a while and is first started up cold.
