Default Outdrive leaking oil

Good afternoon all, I recently purchased a 1995 3200SCR and I noticed that I am loosing outdrive oil but I see no oil in the bilge or any oil in the water around the outdrive. It seems to loose oil when not in use never uses any oil while running any ideas on where it could be going. Leaks about a reservoir worth of oil every two days or so.

It may be leaking into the bellows. Pull the drive off and take a peak.

Timbo welcome aboard.

That's a rather big leak, if not in the bilge then it must be leaking thru a drive seal. I would be concerned that if lube is leaking out water is coming in, this needs to be addressed ASAP.

After further review it is leaking down into the bilge but I can't find any obvious leaks in the hoses or fittings.

Another member is have the same problem and just started a thread. He thinks it is the fitting at the transom assy. You may need a mirror to see back there.
