Not counting the agent orange all over the unit!
Plug wire is pinched under the blower housing and possible fuel line leakage among many other things.....
We get a new camera along with the new meds Fish ?
Is that fuel line laying on metal (metal that can get HOT) & spark plug wire?

Among the other things Rob eluded to, it appears that there may be a crack in the fuel line barb, just above the fuel line attachment.
There also appears to be a crack in fuel pump mounting bracket just above the vacuum hose although that would not likely affect running.
On the other hand, it's possible that these "old eyes" may be tricking me so late in the evening--they should be shut by now.
Plug wire has a hole rubbed in it.
The tygon would probably have been ok if it had a clamp on it...
I'm due to get one of these right ...sooner or later...
What is that agent orange stuff on the mower~?
I've noticed that from time to time on mine after cutting some lawns~
the fuel line appears to have fuel in it between the barb and the pump. Hence the OBVIOUS leak evidenced on the cowl. Could be a simple as a clamp on the fuel line, to possibly a broken fuel connector on the pump but I can't see that for sure but like the previous poster I do see sumtin there.
Not sure I would have caught the spark plug wire worn spot unless I was aware of an electrical issue. The leak issue is oblivious
Rrob, plug wire's not pinched, has a ton of space 'tween the plastic shroud and the shield. Fuel's not leakin'. The camera's 4 years old. The meds, however.......ahhh, the meds................!
CJL, fuel line's not laying on the metal or touching the plug wire.
Dutch, no cracks.
Ldawg, no hole in the plug wire.
LR CT , I think it must be some sorta....... , I don't know!
BKTP, the obvious leak on the cowl is actually runoff from when I oiled the
choke control cable on the dash panel above it. it's mounted vertical so as to catch the rain etc and rust.
What I consider wrong with the picture is the Tygon tubing! That crap gets hard in no time and will almost fall off by itself! The only thing holding it on is the barb at the pump and the filter.
A clamp would help! Since I'm forced to use that chit I at least put a ty-rap on it to act like a clamp.
