I came up with a "posible" fix. i checked the bushings in the lower housing,they seemed to be a sutable fit . so i bought a new lower housing from the dealer $120.removed the two bushings in it,and reassembled the motor and have 5 hours on it now with no oil leak . i think the probable cause of the failure is the governer. the motor runs at its peak power curve ,on max throttle and dose'nt over rev . the dealer said another posible cause is the p.t.o. with a bad ground, arc through the crank to the bearing looking for a ground. the bushing had a teflon like coating.and had a number on it ,my old one did' may find one at an industrial supply shop. i don't know what the stock bushing looked like. this may or may not work.
