Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
All Mercurys are cataloged by serial number, can I get that number please.
Next, have you removed the airbox yet to see if the oil line broke/let go?

Hi Jason
I found the problem. The hinge pin on the cap on the oil reservoir had come almost completely out. I put it back in and no more leak.
