    My 23hp(?) FH680-BS10 is leaking oil at the rear top. I have not taken it apart yet & was hopping someone could point me in the right spot to look for it.

    It is coming over the top left rear above the dipstick tube all the way at the top, but below the cover.

    Thanks

    Either the upper crank seal (92049-7010) or the breather gasket (11060-7014) or both. Either way you will need to pull the top shroud and flywheel to inspect.

    I pulled the shroud, but not the flywheel. After I pulled the shroud it stopped leaking.

    I will pick up both seals and watch it tomorrow.

    To pull the flywheel do I need a puller or will it pop off without one?

    Yes you should use a puller
