    I'm pretty sure they had a recall on this and they will fix it for free at the dealer. Not a 100% sure. Had the same problem but under warranty from dealer so I was good either way.

    lawnsaspire,sorry should have explained it better than I did.Thought it was a flair fitting that is sealed when the flair nut compresses the flair to the mating surface.Looks like you have plenty of help now.

    Got the fitting from parts tree and put it in today. The hose was not crimped to the fitting so there was no need to replace the hose assembly. The o ring had a tear which Allowd oil thru. I was glad I ordered a whole new part though bc it is a newer less bulky design. I'm guessing this is bc of the aforementioned recall. Thanks.
