Oil leak in Briggs and Stratton 24hp engine

Tractor is a Craftsman, about ten years old, and until now has performed well. Leak seems to be coming from the upper front of the engine, model # 446777' type # 0246-E1. Thanks in advance for any info you may have.

SOURCE: 31p777 18.5 hp briggs & stratton valve cover leak

Both can cause problems. It is recommend that you do not go on a grade more the 10% for your safety and the safety for others around. But if the valve cover is leaking this can lead to major problems if not repaired on a timely matter

does it turn over slow or fast if it turns slowly thats the problem so it could be battery or starter they have to have a good amount of rpms to burn fuel right when starting if not it floods out the engine with gas hope this helps thanks wade

lift your seat and look at the label that you got your model number from. to the right of the model number is the serial number. the first six digits of the serial number is the date your tractor was made - for example: serial no. 060802D002756 would make the unit made June 8, 2002

Change you oil and while you are at it change the filter. Do not run until you have completed. You risk engine damage by loosing too much oil while running it.
