PG Clutch

I'm leaking oil at a pretty good clip apparently from my clutch. It started small but has grown the past few days and I lost forward movement pretty quickly. It's not the tranny as the leak is above that. Has anyone seen anything like this before? Pat at PG tells me the gear reduction unit can't be replaced without also replacing the engine. Nothing like spending $800 and tearing equipment apart when you're busy, right?

Are you covered under warranty?

Our Ultras have lots of hours on them, and they use a dry clutch (no oil there). So far no oil leaks. We use synthetic 10W-30.

Forever Green Lawn is more help than me on this. We take our difficult PG repair jobs to Tri-State Toro (a Toro mower dealer). Our local LESCO refers them.

I guess your talking about the Magnum wet clutch? check out the small engine warehouse, I got the engine w/wet clutch for under $500. I bought a couple of them so if I have a engine problem I can take the engine off and take it to a small engine shop and not have down time.
