Hey guys. I pulled my starter housing drain bolt like I usually do every once in a while because water seems to find its way in there in both my quads every now and then. But this time, when I pulled the plug, instead of rusty or muddy water, I got Black liquid stinking like fuel. Definitly fuel. Just to confirm with you guys: This is only possible from my outer crank seal leaking. Is that correct? Is this somewhat normal for older 2 strokes? Just curious as well, Sometimes my trails have water up to the bottom of the seat. I try to avoid these, but sometime I have to cross them. When I do, is the water that inevitably leaks into the hole where my pull cord goes in leaking into the starter area, or just leaks back out the recoil reel housing cover? Just trying to also figure out where the ocational water in my starter houseing is coming in. But thats a seperate issue from the fuel in there...
Any thoughts guys?
Thanks for any advice given!
