    Hi there everyone?I have a 19 hp kawasaki engine leaking oil while the machine is not running(lesco 48).Have looked at it and can not seem to find the source of the leak.It is leaking behind the throttle linkage and down on to
    the deck of the mower.I just put engine oil dye in the oil as a last hope to find the leak.Any help would be great.Thanks John.:)

    It's probably leaking out the governor shaft hole. Is it a big leak or just a pain in the arse?

    More then likely its the gov. seal
    Item # 92049-7005 MSRP .65 cents.
    But I have seen the sump gasket fail so make sure its leaking from the shaft first.

    Thanks guys for the info I will check that.I have to say though that the motor
    is a 15 hp,(sorry) I got it mixed up with my other mower:confused: .I will still
    check those 2 things because i believe the motors are very similiar in design.
    Thanks John:)
