I have twin 2005 ETEC 200's (E200DCXSOC/E200PSXOC). My last fishing trip out I trolled several hours (first time trolling this much). Everything appeared normal but two days later noticed oil leaking around the shift linkage to the lower unit. I took the cowling off and followed the trail up but haven't been able to duplicate or find the source of the leak running at idle speeds on muffs.
It doesn't look like any oil is leaking from the oil filter, air handler or any lines. The oil appears to be new 2 stroke oil. Any ideas or past experience with similar? Arrow and pictures show the highest point I've found oil. Pictures were taken after clean up.
