2003-01-22: UPDATE TSB reported that the crew of the PA-34 Seneca, was on a local instrument training flight when they observed smoke in the cockpit. They requested an immediate landing, carried out checklist procedures, and landed without further incident. After landing, they observed oil pooling under the right engine (Lycoming IO-360), and shut down the right engine. Maintenance staff found the right engine crankcase breather line had iced up, and that the engine oil had been forced out through the propeller seal. The breather line was thawed and a new propeller seal was installed.
