Problem fixed: Stern drive leaked oil from water inlet
After changing oil at spring I noticed that there was leaking oil from water inlet tube and that oil level in upper part housing had dropped. So after reading repair manual and looking trough explosion pictures of upper housing I concluded that there must be problem somewhere in the sealings. Only problem was that its next to impossible to find parts for OMC in Finland. After little searching i found Crowley Marine. Using of web store was really easy and parts arrived to Finland in less than a week. Mean while i had opened the upper housing and located the leak in to o-ring between gearhousing and main housing. When parts arrived work was relatively easy. While I had the whole upper housing opened. I also changed water pump and all the other sealings as well. Whole time it took was about 5 hour. Plus Removing and installing the sterndrive from the boat took about 2 ours each.
