    Is it a Wright that slopped hydro oil all over?

    I am still waiting on pictures of the engine. So far all I see is a picture of a pile of manure.

    Joking aside. People can not understand why they have an over heat problem with an engine that is cover 2 inches deep with manure, dirt, oil, grease and who knows what. Just what part of AIR COOLED do they not understand?

    I'm not sure what I'm looking at here but assume its a Kawi on a yellow mower with greasy dirt caked in the cooling fins.

    Fish said the oil didn't come from engine leak. That leaves sloppy filling or from the hydro system. I'm sure the sludge/grass blanket is what's keeping it toasty along with the ventilated housing.

    You be the WINNER !!!!

    Yeah, on the 36" models the hydro ( there's that word again! I GOT to figure out what that means! ) tank is located just above and to the side of the engine fan. It actually has a kinda chute that directs the air over the tank on its way to the fan opening. Couple that with the vented tank cap, and the tendency for them little buggies to bounce, and well, you get the picture.
