Hi, Guys, I have always used XD100 on the XD100 settings, but yesterday I change the settings to TC-W3 and continue running the DX100 ( "now" I want this engine to last as much as possible) then I ran the engine for about 45 minutes on the flush bag, this morning I notice a small amount of oil dripping  from the prop exhaust, I did not winterized or ran the oil pump just change the settings, why is it injecting so much oil?  I have used the TC-W3 setting before and have never seen that much oil on the exhaust, any ideas? thanks

Combustion temps are cooler while idling on a garden hose and no back pressure with the lower unit not being submerged.

Thanks TMD, but I run the engine on a flush bag meaning that there is  back pressure on the exhaust prop hub and the side exhaust, you could be right I have never seen it before, Cheers

Yes you are right it does, it is gone, I ran it hard last week and it has not drip oil any more, it needed a good spanking I guess
