Have a Honda FG110 - today I found a large puddle of "clean" oil under it! does not appear to be engine oil .. gear case maybe?

Look at the shaft seals on the output shaft where the tines are attached. If it's wet then the oil came from the gear box.

My toro 6.5 hp leaks oil at the bottom of the engine runs ok

If this is the vertical shaft motor, there is a seal at the bottom where the crank shaft exits the case. On the vertical motors I've taken apart, the bottom of the case is like an oil pan. It is possible that you could have a crack in the case. But also check the oil drain plug to be tight, but not too tight. This could also cause a crack in the motor case.

How do I change the oil pump?

Drive your Tuson upwards onto ramps or possibly lifts. You can implement a jack, but brace entry wheels so they don't really roll. Set the emergency break to be sure the car doesn't recede.
    1- Drain typically the engine oil and eliminate the negative battery connection. Take out typically the timing belt along with the oil pan. Take away the oil screen, your gasket, the petroleum pressure switch, your oil filter clump and gasket.
    2- Take away the plug cap in the oil pump perhaps the case with Method 09213-33000. Insert some sort of 0. 32 inch screwdriver throughout the plug hole whereas plugging the left side within the engine block. The screwdriver really should go in at a minimum 2. 4 in ..
    3- Pull through the pump made gear, the left counter top balance shaft bolt and therefore the front case mounting bolts. Note the program plans and locations within the bolt. Remove the way it is and gasket and then the two counter balance shafts out of your block.
    4- Separate that oil pump protect and gears with the case. Remove the screwdriver on the plug hole and eliminate the pump driven gear and then the left counter stabilize shaft bolt. Take the essential oil pumpcover belonging to the case. Install Brand new Oil Pump
      5- Assemble the Water pump and Timing belt and all other assemblies you had removed earlier.
      6- Fill the crankcase with the correct level. Start your Tuson engine and check out leaks.

Hello, I have a 2006 Night Train with an open primary and im getting a oil leak from the seal on the main output shaft. I have replaced it twice and I have replaced the same direction as the factory one...

The lip of the oil seal on the engine sprocket shaft faces towards the inside of the engine, metal side out. The lip always goes against the direction of oil flow. You should not be having to replace this seal that often. If something is wrong, I'd guess that it's either an improper installation or an oil leak around some spacer or something that the seal might run on. When you put the seal in, put some non-hardening Permatex sealant around the outside edge of the seal where it goes into the case. Very important, put some oil or some type of lubricant on the shaft and the lip of the seal where it rides on the engine output shaft. When you start the engine up, it will turn up 2000 RPMs or better. The friction created by a dry installation will destroy the delicate lip on the seal in a fraction of a second before the engine oil can get to it. I see this happen a lot when people replace the seal on the backside of the inner primary. They put the seal in dry and the lip on the seal is burned up in the first second of engine operation. Also check your engine crankcase breather to make sure that it isn't restricted.

Good Luck

Rear main seal leak


If somebody told you that you have a main seal leak what they meant was the round seal that is around the circumference of the output shaft of the crank. This same output shaft is basically hooked up to the transmission, or through to the transimission through a clutch. Well after some time, the round seal, it looks something like a flat donut, leaks. Imagine stretching a small spring around a shaft of steel and wrapping the spring in rubber. It will stop the oil from leaking along the shaft and out of the engine. After wear and tear, it needs to be replaced.

If this is the case, well, given that you have not said what type of vehicle you have, you would need to either pull the engine out or drop or pull out the transmission to get at the shaft and replace the $10 seal part. A lot of work for a small item but it will continue to leak until of course you run out of oil and ruin the motor.

I hope this helps somewhat.

Oil is leaking out of the shifter assenbly on my 2001 yamaha yx 125. there appears to be some type of seal there. how do i change it?

Most often, the shifter shaft seal is on the inside of the left-side engine/transmission cover. Check this with your repair manual. If so, you would need to remove the shifter assembly from the shifter shaft and then remove all the machine screws that hold the cover on and remove the cover (sliding it off the shifter shaft). If this is the case, you will also need a replacement cover gasket in addition to the shift shaft seal and it will be much less messy if you drain the engine oil first. Also, take care in re-installing the new seal and wrap the knurled end of the shifter shaft with tape prior to sliding the cover back on so it doesn't damage the new seal.

You have probably spun a rod bearing. These engines do not like running with low/no oil.
