    I was just at my dealer, dropping off the mower for a slight oil leak in the back.

    Service manager guy just got back from Kubota training at corporate and said "funny, we just learned about this".

    Turns out Kubota was using a bad gasket and such around the crankshaft.

    Take it in, they pull the crankshaft and put a new wear sleeve on it.

    Get it done quick though, it's time consuming.

    Anyone seen this "service bulletin"? Is it available anywhere?
    I would like to have access to it just in case I have the problem.
