Finished mowing my lawn the other day, parked the Skag and later that day decided I would sharpen the blades and do some other maintenance on it. It had been sitting 4-5 hours when I went to go work on it and I saw a huge amount of 'liquid' had been dripping from underneath it. At first glance it looked like engine oil and the drip was also coming from right underneath the engine. Upon closer examination the fluid was indeed oil BUT looked too thin. It was more fluid than the crankcase could ever hold and smelled like gasoline. So I pulled the dipstick and sure enough the level was about 1/2 way up on the stick. So I got a catch pan and removed the dipstick and body altogether and the fuel/oil mix just chugged out of it. It has never done this before and I have owned it since new (2003 model). I'm guessing the float valve in the carb is not closing off in its seat, or the float has filled with gas? I have a carb from a Kawasaki FH721V (mine is a FH601V) that will bolt right on and I've been meaning to do the 'carb mod' to raise the HP rating from 19 to 25 (I already have the oil cooler installed). But I suppose I need to go the Carb first (it is used). Need to get it up and running, the growing season in Deep East Texas is about 2 weeks away. Already have weeds popping up in the yard.
