Have a Turf Tracer with the exact same engine. Mine is close to turning 5000 hours so I understand where you are. If the leak is around the governor shaft it is an expensive repair. If it is else where it should not be a deal breaker. The popping could be nothing more than a carb issue. If so, rebuilds for that are cheap. My advice is to take it in to a reputable shop and have two tests run: a leak down test and check the compression. If those are good, I would get an estimate for the repairs. Just guessing but replacing the engine could run up to $2500.
