Is it possible the oil is slowly seeping through that weep hole ??
    Yes but it would mean that the upper driveshaft seal is leaking into the bellows. You would need to pull th drive to see if there is lube in there.

    Yep, there’s a weep hole in that inner transom grease seal.

    🤔
    I missed that but suspect the leak is in that area. Another possible area could be the drives upper seal leaking into the bellows and eventually seeping past the gimbal bearing.

    Most likely it leaking at the transom fitting like Dave said, common issue.

    If your positive the drive lube is what you see in the engine bay bilge I’d say you have a compromised lube reservoir or the hose from the reservoir to the transom fitting is leaking.
    Id clean the bottle, hose , and transom fitting then add some lube to the reservoir and observe. Some paper towels wrapped around those components will help pinpoint the leak if it’s there.

    started a topic 2425 bayliner classic. Leaking gear oil

    2425 bayliner classic. Leaking gear oil

    Looking for help !!!! Anyone have any ideas on what would cause my gear lube reservoir to suddenly drain down and puddle up around my bilge. I have a 1993 bayliner classic with a 5.7 bravo mercrusier and a bravo 2 outdrive. This occurred while the boat was parked it has been parked for a couple weeks i just replaced the starter. Never had any leaks before then all of a sudden it was empty ???? Boat hasn't moved . My reservoir is mounted on my transom wall and does not appear to be leaking from the tank itself i followed it down to brass 90 that goes into the transom. All seemed pretty clean. Just an empty reservoir and a puddle down below. Any thoughts or suggestions are greatly appreciated thanks guys
