    Mercruiser Lower Unit Leaking-gctid813308

    I'm a new boat owner, so forgive me if I'm not using the right terms or whatever....my Alpha One lower unit is leaking, and I'm having issues finding where its coming from. I did a little bit of research and found that the gasket where the shift cable passes through is a common issue, but after looking at that area, its bone dry. I have included some pictures, it seems like it might be coming from the 2 holes on the sides of the drive which from what I understand are vent holes. I'm very mechanically inclined from working on cars and truck as well as all of the equipment I own for my business, but boats are a foreign territory for me. That said, I really would hate to take it in to the dealer if its something simple that I can diagnose and do myself. Obviously not looking for the internet to solve my problems but figured I'd at least get a direction to go in before I just start tearing into something I don't know much about. Thanks in advance!

        91' to 95' Gen 2 .

        #6 or # 37 in the diagram if torn could put oil in the chamber that feeds those 2 holes the oil is coming out.

        #6 would be the first choice i would look at .

        Got the free manual link ?
