Oil leak issue
2007 seadoo wake 215
rebuilt the s/c on it 2 summers ago... Maybe 30 hours. Now I have a bad oil leak (prilly a quart every 10 minutes of riding) that started this season. I've done some searching around because my first thought was the s/c seal. I do have a little oil in the s/c intake side, but the vast amount of oil loss is in the hull. So now I'm thinking pto seal. It is wet on the bottom, but is there something else that could be leaking the oil and getting the bottom of the pto seal wet?
Does oil generally not leak from where the charger bolts to the motor? (Not any great amount anyway?)
I'm getting no smoke from the exhaust. If it were the s/c seal would I be getting some smoke? Also, would it not fill up the hull if it were the s/c?
im really leaning towards pto seal, I just wanted some thoughts, others things to check, and ideas on the best way to know if it is the pto seal before I buy one.

only 3 places I've ever seen oil leak from on a 4 tec. Oil filter cap. PTO bellows. and the Oil cooler. But the PTO bellows beats the others 10 to 1. If you can't find the leak, clean out the hull really good then stick some rags under the oil cooler and the pto bellows. run the ski for a bit then see which rags are oily

Check the front oil pump housing for cracks. I had a piece of ceramic washer pass the screen and hit the oil pump gear and crack the housing. Had to get motor split and flushed and replaced broken parts. Good luck.

Oil cooler 2nd.
I've seen them both leak massive amounts before.
Sometimes they don't leak much at idle but as soon as you hit some revs they dump it out..
