Message:

  I have a Decathlon which is spraying a little oil onto the windshield.

We've replaced the seal that fits between the prop and the crankshaft -
twice!  No sign of oil now in that area.

Seems to be leaking from the prop hub somewhere (some grease/oil on the
blades).

Any ideas?

I used to have a Yak - so it came as some surprise when someone told me I
had a problem...

Many thanks
