    Is that normal? Is my ratio of gas and oil off? After I park it, I will get a few drops of oil on the ground from the exhaust.

    You could pull your spark plug and see if it is black. If so, you are running a bit rich and should adjust the e-clip on the carb needle. Hope this helps. Keep us posted.

    When i changed to an NGK, there was an oily appearance in the chamber...normal? Maybe i'll add more gas to my mixture.

    Drippy exhausts are caused by rich fuel/air ratios, not by too much oil in the fuel. A properly jetted two stroke can be run with 24:1 mix without much exhaust mess.

    As mentioned start by raising the c-clip (thereby lowering the needle) to help things out.

    That's what 2-stroke engines do best - drip oil from everywhere.
    If it starts squeeking and starts to run slow, you'll probably wish it was dripping oil from every location
