    Hey all I have a scag turf tiger with a 27 liquid cooled kawasaki. I have a crack on the engine by the oil pressure switch. It leaked a little bit from there before. But I started it this morning and oil was shooting out everywhere. What would be the best way to fix it? Or do I need a new engine? Any ideas would be great

    Mr. J, Welcome to Lawnsite from one ex-Cheesehead to another,(Go Green Bay!!!). Is the machine still under warranty? Have you searched Kawa's site for answers, (not that they'd admit to a problem), but sometimes the Tech Service Bulletins are made public if you can find an in, hey Restro you still here anymore? How about a good local heli-arc welder having a look at it or a machine shop, but I wouldn't do anything without a digital camera and complaining to the dealer, or bending Kawa's ear real hard,copy? Good Luck, what a drag, C'ya K

    its a 2002 with 1900 hours so no warranty. I'll look to see if I can find a welder around here.
