I have an os32sxh that seems to leak fuel all over.
I suspect it is coming out the drive end,but as these engines dont have crank seals,what makes them leak after a lot of use?
I run it at about 4200 feet elevation
temp is around 200*
I get 30 minutes hover time out of a V1 tank,consistantly.
It runs very well with about 37 lbs compression.
it is a ringed os32sxh.
I do not think it is from the exhaust spray that seems to cover the heli

You may get some leakage through the front bearing, but this is preferable to having the front bearing running dry. If it bothers you, replace the front bearing with one that has a newer seal.
