Do you think it's harmful to continue running it with this possible "blow by"? Doesn't that include an internal leak of some kind? If that were happening wouldn't the mower be running rough. Mine doesn't. Another thought. In July I replaced the air filter. The one I bought is wix and they said it matches the number on my last filter. But I kind of have to muscle it in the filter holder as it has a rubber ring around the end of the filter that protrudes out a bit more than the last one and makes it harder to get the cover back on the filter holder. Could I have the wrong filter causeing oil darkening?
