    About 3 weeks ago with about 475 hours on my 1 1/2 year old 25hp Kaw 60" Super Z all four of my engine mounts broke, and I've notice since it got fixed some oil has been leaking out. I can't tell if it's from the hydo pump or the engine. It's near the drain plug. I replaced the plug and it still leaks.

    Any ideas what this might be?

    Will this repare be covered under the waranty?

    First we need to find out where the oil is coming from, it sounds like it may be coming from the engine.
    You need to get it to the dealer to have it checked out, the dealer will diagnose it and find out where it is leaking, then he can call Kawasaki or Hustler to have it considered for warranty.
    The Kawasaki engines have a 2 year warranty.

    My oil filter loosened up and was seeping.
