View Full Version : Kaw 601 oil seal

05-08-2010, 08:20 PM
My governor shaft seal is leaking and the manual I have says this:

"If the oil seal is removed, oil seal is put on after shaft is installed"

Do I take this to mean that the seal can be replaced without opening up the engine?
Sorry, it's a 25 kaw not a 19

I have two mowers with the 23 hp kawi engine. On one of them the seal could be replaced as you described. On the other, newer one, they had to replace the shaft and other parts. Lots of labor.
