    I recently bought an 1100 engine, which has the same case as yours. It also had oil in it. It's not supposed to, but it's amazing how many people think the plug on top of the stator cover is for putting oil in. NOT TRUE!

    As pokechop said, the Ultra 150s DO use oil in the front to lube the balance shaft.

    "if" it is oil, that some one, mistakenly added, jsut clean it up, and reassemble.

    to replace the front crank seal, you must dissassemble the motor, and split the cases. i would do a leak down test, to check the crank seals first.

    if it is as much oil as you say, i would guess some one added it, as that is ALOT for a leak.

    I'd start by checking the start switch/kill switch.
