    Default Brand new Bravo 3x never splashed or run - Oil leak?

    As said above. Just preparing for first test start and tilted the leg to get the test tank under the leg. Noticed drive oil coming out of the front dual water inlet. Where could it be coming from? any ideas? Thanks.

    Its quite possible if the drive was fitted while there was oil in the reservoir that as the drive was installed oil can leak out before the drive is fully mated and it will run down the internal passage and out the bottom.
    If its only a small amount and no more coming out then probably nothing to worry about, if the level in the reservoir is dropping or empty then you need to investigate further

    Thanks both. I'll see if the leak stops with no loss from the reservoir first.
