That's really wierd, I would probably put regular gear lube in there rather than that stuff.

it looks like that because water got into it and when water and oil mix up it looks like slightly grey heavy cream. i was just joking asking about it.

Yeah, I just changed the oil in the snowthrower at work yesterday. Its finally suppose to get really cold tonight with snow so there is some hope floating around. The oil in the snowthrower was the same way, I had to put three quarts of oil through to get all the crap out of it.

the nice thing about the chaincase is you can just spray the heck out of it with brake cleaner to clean it out, let it dry and fill it back up. when you get water in the crankcase of something like a snowblower or something like that it's much more of a pain.

ya i did a lower unit on a boat this year that was greenish gray. At least you found it when you did. That would have been ugly later in the year. make sure it seals up nice and tight.

i'm gonna guess it went in through a vent. at least i'll hope it's a vent and not the driveshaft seal.
