Re: 1987 Westerbeke W10: PROBLEMS: HELP!!!
Second problem... clean it up best you can, lay down paper towels or oil matting, run the engine and see where it's dripping from. If it's a rear seal, oil hitting the flywheel may get flung around a bit, but if it's a leaky pan or other static leak you should be able to locate it - don't wait too long, just get the oil pressure up and the engine warm, dig out some earplugs, a flashlight and a mechanic's mirror and investigate.
