I took off the starter for a few seconds and oil starting pouring out. I then put the starter back in place right away. This doesn't seem right for the starter to have oil in it. What's the deal?

The starter seals off part of the case that contains the wet clutch, so it's normal to have some oil pour out.

Edit: starter actually mates to the generator side. Oil escaping when the starter is removed is still normal.
