Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

With the oily substance coming from the cylinder, You are going to need to open up the carbs and do a good cleaning on them. Replacing the needles and the O-rings as you put them back together. Get rid of the old fuel and oil. After you have replaced this, give the ski a test run on a flusher. This should take care of your issue.
