    Went to start the mower today after about 2 months of inactivity and noticed some oil on the shed floor. Started it up and both hydros were leaking. Both from the same spot...on the underside, two small bolts hold a cover on and theres a circular seal around that cover. That is where it appears the leak is coming from. Can I get new seals? Also, what lb torque are those bolts to be at? I already tried to tighten one up and it just sheared right off....so now I got to replace a bolt as well and extract the stud :(

    It is a Mini Z 42" model number 928200. Has 240 hours on it.

    Be sure the cover and bolts go on in the EXACT position they were removed.

    Ended up the cover was warped. Ordered the cover only and it is to be here this week. I'll put it all back together and hopefully it will be sealed nice and tight.

    Thanks for the advice.
