On preflight, found excessive oil under right engine. Contacted contract maintenance to evaluate situation. Mechanic briefed me that he found 3 b-nuts loose and he secured them. When I was reviewing the logbook and the balancing entry, I failed to notice that the mechanic did not enter his signature.
