my 2002 super Z has a large leak from the passenger side of the mower. is there a gasket that might have blown out and if so now much is it?

We need to narrow down exactly what is leaking here first.
Is it a line or fitting? or is it leaking from a seal on the pump or wheel motor?

Ok.
It could be as simple as a seal or as bad as needing a wheel motor.
It needs to be disassembled to find out.

There is normally no pressure on the dust seal that would allow oil to leak out there. Therefore, if it is leaking there, a seal internal in the wheel motor is leaking. I have seen this a number of times before. There is a seal inside that looks as though it is made of Teflon that goes out, allowing fluid to flow out of the dust seal. Your dealer can get a seal kit for the motor. They are pretty simple to repair. Just keep it CLEAN.
