I own a 48 in. scag belt drive walk behind. The transmission (tecumseh) is leaking significantly. The grease is pouring out between the crack in the middle of the transmission. I do not want to overtighten the bolts connecting the 2 sides. Any suggestions of why it is doing this or how I can stop it. Thanks

Don't have a reason why other than someone could have put too much grease in at one point or water got in.

You can loosen the detent adjuster then remove the shift lever and pull the top for inspection, It should have bentonite grease in it. Clean the case halves and put some loctite gasket eliminator on the case before re-installing the top.
