    Oil leaking near/around Charger

    It's been the season of oil leaks for me. After riding WOT for a good length and towards the end of an all day ride, I stopped ski and noticed smoke coming out of hull. I ripped seat off and saw oil burning on exhaust manifold and some sitting on top of charger. I noticed some oil last 2 rides in same spot. Not really burning/consuming much oil thse days. Already replaced the PTO cover + gasket earlier this season, and cleaned all oil in hull from that incident.

    What can this leak be from? Smells like I'm driving a high mileage Civic! I have the Fizzle Catch can and there was some ( little oil /gas water inside.)

    There are 2 o-rings on the SC shaft that seal the shaft up preventing oil from coming out. The o-rings sometimes go out and it will leak through the shaft slightly. Mine has done this before. It's a good first place to look. The smell is coming from the catch can. Instead of venting into the intake as it was at stock, it is now venting into the hull and you have a more noticeable smell. Good luck!

    If you remove all the oil the leak will stop I promise.

    IF you have oil on top of the exhaust manifold and SCer,that tells me your valve cover gasket is bad...
