    rxt help needed

    went out today on my 2005 seadoo rxt and while i was ridding i noticed that oil was leaking out of my engine into my hull!!! any idea where it could be comming from? i checked the oil pump and no bolts were missing or leaks that i could see. its also been going up to 7000 rpm and then droping down to 3000 rpms ??? (it makes a weird sound)

    Check your PTO bearing/seal.. Where the driveshaft enters the motor

    kk thanks
    but what should i look for

    (what i have done so far is remove my intake manifold just to check my oil cooler but havent pulled the cooler it self yet and since ive got home i started the bike just to flush it, went inside and came back out and saw almost all my oil in the hull didnt know what to do )
    still think the the bearing/seal the prob?

    most likely pto bellow and bearing.. usually leak when turned on.. clean up under seal then start it and then look for oil dripping or feel under it and see if it's oily after you turn it off.

    so i removed the engine without taking out the shaft first cause i didnt have a c clip tool and while i took it out i noticed that the bearing came right off on the shaft as i took the mottor out so i guess u guys where right about the bearing and clamp but i still dont understand how i got an oil leak from there
