oil in the engine compartment rxtx 260
today was the second time im noticeing oil in the engine compartment seems to be a decent amount im also getting some water so its mixing and splashes around hull getting some in the catch can but not alot maybe a teaspoon.i dont think its coming from the catch can filter cause theres no oil in the upper part of the hull where the filter is seems to be mostly in the front lower part of the motor.the ski is running perfect and the speed/rpms are up, i also did a compression test 125 on all cylinders.im trying to keep the afr low to mid 12s but around 8000 rpm i its dropping to 11.3, i need to fine tune that part and i got injectors on order.where can the oil be coming from heres couple pics

check the pto shaft seal. the hose clamp on mine keeps getting loose causing it to leak oil.

Most probably your PTO seal is leaking and is very common. Been there done that.

Went to go check the alignment with my trusty SBT alignment kit...but the pump mount is very different from my 2012 PX260. Have no idea what I'm doing and the their isn't a service manual on the CanDooPro site. .

The other oil leak source is the "oil radiator" part #34 heat exchanger. Not as common as the PTO seal leaking, but possible. Also realize the PTO seal doesn't tend to leak at rest, but will pour out the oil while running in just a few minutes.
Have you got any new vibrations, excessive wear ring wear?
