    Is this a leak? I didn’t notice any problems last season and never had water in the engine compartment. Changing oil today and looked around and found this on both engines.

    Looks like it might have been over greased? Did you add grease via the grease nipple?

    The bearings are hermetically sealed and require no additional grease... ever. The grease in the housing only helps provides a water barrier inside the seals. If you are not seeing any water in the engine compartment, I would just wipe up the excess with a rag and then just run it.
