Has anyone had an issue with the Oil Plug Assembly leaking? Mine is leaking out of the center of the plug assembly. And only leaks when the engine is running.

Where is that located? I've been through 2 or 3 oil tanks under the cowling in the past 4 years and oil has almost always seeped out from my cowling from something. Probably just need another oil reservoir lol.

This is the Oil Plug Assembly on the outside of the motor on the down shaft. It's used to drain the oil during an oil change on a four stroke.

Buddy of mine had this problem with his. Carried it back to dealer and they fixed it.
His is a 250 though..

Do you know if they just replaced the assembly with a new one?

Bad O-Ring on the plug OR the wrong plug. In my case it was the wrong plug. Replaced the O-Ring twice and it never stopped. Replace the entire plug and it stopped.

Pretty sure they replaced the plug and o ring.
Ruined his day of fishing but it was a quick fix.
