Welcome aboard

That the raw water weep hole to help drain down standing raw water. Gear lube showing up hear is typically a sign of the shift shaft seal leaking.

First 9 psi is to high of a pressure to leak test an outdrive, I believe the manual calls for about have that otherwise you risk damaging the seals. Second the drive should be completely drained to perform this test. You only need to test at one plug.

When reinstalling the lower unit the gear shift must be in forward and well as the lower unit. Trick is holding the lower unit in forward by providing a slight pressure twist on the propshaft while installing.
