    My lightly used '92 johnson 60 horse 3 cylinder is leaking 2 cycle oil ( red, same as oil reservoir ) somewhere toward the bottom portion of the engine, then drips down the sides of the outboard. The amount is just enough to be messy, and can't redily see the source. The engine runs great, does not smoke more than normal. Could the VRO pump be leaking out the bottom somewhere where it can't easily be seen? Or do I need to further investigate.
    Thank You, Rich
