Question about Garden
Tecumseh/Ariens snoblower (OHV110 snowking engine) with oil leak, I have this 3 yr old machine and it has always seeped oil from the engine (my brother has a Husqvarna with the same engine and has the same problem. It is not the oil drain or the crankcase breather. Can you help? Thank You.
On many Tecumseh engines, there is a crankcase breather located under the flywheel. It has a cork gasket to seal the top plate of the breather. Either the rubber breather housing is cracked, or the cork gasket needs replaced.

First of all check all your fuel lines from your tank to your carb for cracks, with the carb it is common on these to leak past the needle and seat in the carb, I would remove the float and try clean up the needle and seat first, then if that doesnt work you should be able to purchase the needle and seat as a spare part and not have to replace the whole carb...
Most times this problem can be rectified with a quick clean up of the needle and seat as there could be some forign matter or debris under it, be sure to reset the float level/seat turn the carb upside down a check that the float is sitting level or parallell with the carb body...
Hope this helps
