    Does the liquid cooled 22hp Kawasaki use hydralic
    or solid lifters for the valves?

    The above motor on my Scag Turf Tiger is using coolant. Oil looks ok, can't see a leak, runs and idles very smooth. Thoughts?

    could be a bad head gasket or cracked head. remove the plugs and look for a very clean plug from being steam cleaned. look in the radiator after it's warmed up to see if you see small bubbles circulating. this is another sign of a head or gasket problem
