Default Drive oil leak at transom hose fitting

Greetings all,
Had a great time on the water last weekend in St. Andrews Bay, FL with our 2000 2400SCR. After pulling her out and while washing her down, I noticed some drops of drive oil dripping on to the wash rack. Upon closer inspection, it appears to be coming from the hose that comes out of the transom, that leads up to the ext. drive lube monitor mounted on the engine. (5.7L 2bbl w/ BIII). It didn't start dripping until we were a good 10-15 minutes into rinsing.

I have the Clymer manual, and I believe I have the quick disconnect fitting that the hose from the drive connects to the transom. I am unable to see if the hose is leaking, or the fitting itself, but I am guessing the fitting. I may have been hitting it pretty hard with some high pressure rinse water, but I find it hard to believe that could cause a leak. Then again..........

Anyone have any experience with this hose line that goes from the outdrive thru the transom up to the lube monitor reservoir? It has pretty much bled out all the drive oil, but at least it is on the trailer. I can see the fitting, but don't think I can get at it without removing the drive, which I am comfortable doing only on my Alpha on my other boat, but not the Bravo III. That is a monster.

Thanks Crew.

I've never pulled the b3 before..seen mine off at the shop before...they used a jack to pull the drive off...
but it should be fairly simple once the drive is off...

check with your local shop and see how to get at it!!..I'm sure they would be willing to tell you how to replace that hose...if it's the hose...can you get your hands on it and reseat the hose??...
and welcome to the zoo...

Well,
The problem was the fitting, as it was cracked. The 2000 year models had a plastic fitting coming from the transom to the drive, and mine was cracked. The new ones are metallic.

Of course, once the drive was off, I saw some other issues that I wanted to fix. Nothing that $$$$ wasn't able to square away.

Anyone looking for service in Panama City, FL, I highly recommend Paul's Marine. Very knowledgeble, fair, and prompt.

So now we are back in action, looking forward to the 4th down in St. Andrews Bay, FL.
