Need more info.. Little confusing.
- Was the lower unit off the motor when you discovered the drip?
- Did you have everything back together and discovered the drip?
If the lower unit was off; there is no way you could have wiped all the oil off the shaft and etc.. After setting, GRAVITY brought it down from somewhere. I am pretty sure it was a little build up there some where and when the air temperature heated up it ran down and dripped. Shouldn't be an issue.
If everything was back together and the boat was sitting in your shop and you noticed a drip on the floor; then the area inside the plug cavity probably was not cleaned and dried properly. Sometimes the O'ring needs replacing or even the whole plug. If you replace the whole plug there is no guarantees that they will sell you the right one. Nautical Mile never got this little problem right on my new boat; so I had to go with North TX. Marine in Gainsville to get them to fix the problem which was wrong plug.
