Default Blower 250 B&M

Hey Guys, I not so long ago had blower repaired and the other day after only 5 hrs running I noticed a seeping of brownish fluid coming out around the blower pulley and small amount on front of case which pooled on ledge of block. Any ideas. It was filled with redline oil. thanks Speed

i run a 8-71 blower in my car. was it over filled? i also have a relief button on the fill plug to relieve any pressure after i shut it down. keeps the seals in good order. (so far)

sounds like a seal is going bad, or Bearing also. Clean and check before each use to determin if seal is leaking.I have hours on mine and no leaky weaky.

Yes. I once had mine rebuilt, and even the brand new one was seeping.

The Blower Shop told me it is fairly common.
