Let start by saying that I am not mechanically inclined! I have done a search and read numerous threads on this engine. The engine has 376 hours on it and is starting to leak oil. The engine is on a 54" Hustler Hydro Walk Behind, which I use about 95% of the time. My dealer is extremely backed-up and I really can't go 1 day without this mower let alone a week and a half! I realize that this isn't one of Kawasaki's best motors, but I am stuck with it! At least I'm stuck with it until it "blows"! I have tried a seal conditioner that claims to stop leaks, but am skeptical. It is hard to see where the leak is and it doesn't seem to be using more oil! Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas????????? Thanks in advance!
