    Cheapest way is buy the manual for the engine, dig out your tools and start pulling it apart. You will typically find the culprit.

    did you prime the oil injection system before you started the engine? my optimax would do the same thing.

    Does it look like lower unit oil or 2 stroke oil?
    Lower unit oil is thicker (75-90w). Check the lower unit oil level and if it's full,more than likely its 2 stroke unburned oil.(from not starting right away)
    I would clean it off and restart it.

    First of all don't take apart anything!

    I don't believe there are any seals that could have blown by starting the motors. With these new style out boards being injected not carbuorated, you really need to start them periodically and not let fuel sit in the injectors for long periods of time

    If you lost a seal on the prop shaft which is rare you would see a thick oil leaking from the prop. You can pull the prop yourself and verify that.

    My guess nothing wrong just old 2 stroke oil from motors sitting. How long did you run it on the muffs till warmed up?

    i have to agree i bet if the motors where up during storage that is just old 2 stroke oil.
    run them out for a few mins and see if it cleans up.
