Sounds like a bad seal behind the flywheel. Somtimes you can pull the flywheel and replace the seal without taking anything else apart. Get a good flywheel puller from a bike shop - its about $25. It makes the job much easier.

i do not want to sound rude but theres been two other replies explaining about crank seals.however it would be great if it was just an access hole seal.are you positive about this.i am very grateful for the reply but could you explain a bit more.cheers tractor.
