If you have a csp, the area of the crankshaft around the prop hub is hollow. This is where oil is collected to control the pitch changes of the prop blades. This oil stays there and is not changed with an engine oil change. It can/does get gunked up in that area. If you have a fixed pitch prop, not a concern. If you have a csp, just clean it out when you replace your alternator belt.
