        There you go. Those are the only 2 possible sorces. If you over filled the ring oiler you will have this. Back end gear box leaking is the other possible sorce. Easy enough to find out. Look in the tray under the back end motor. Is it full of oil ?

          The pinwheel is coated with a tar like noise dampening material. If it was cleaned with some sort of solvent cleaner, it could cause it to soften and drip onto the floor.
          Yeah but, We've always done it that way.
