Honda GCV 160OHV cover oil leak

I have a Troybuilt self propelled with a Honda GCV160 engine. There is an oil leak from the OHV cover. I removed the 4 bolts but the cover wouldn't come off. I looked at engine diagrams and there is no gasket shown. Are they sealed with "Form-a-Gasket? Will I need to destroy the cover and replace it in order to fix the leak?

SOURCE: Leaks oil looks like from valve cover

You have to remove the spark plugs cables and remove the four nuts that you see when the cables are removed.

When the four nuts are removed, simply raise the valuve cover. When replacing the gasket, make sure you get the gromets as well. Those sometimes get worn or crack since they are more exposed than the value cover gasket. Make sure that you clean the cover from oil and replace the gasket with no use of silicon.

Good Luck.

What are the steps to start mower.


I could not locate your exact model for a manual. This machine's manual is very similar. Please read the operating and "How To Start" instructions inside the manual. They can tell you better than I.

I need to change oil in my yard man lawn mower. Where is the drain plug? I need to change the oil


Hi, you drain it out of the dipstick filler hole by tipping the mower to that side. Remove the sparkplug cap first as a safety precaution. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Pull the spark plug and see if there is oil in the cylinder. When you turn a 4 cycle engine over or on it's side, the oil can leak into the cylinder. There may be so much oil in there that the piston won't move. When you have the plug out, clean it before you re-install. Good luck...Lee

Honda Self-Propelled Lawn Mower leaking oil?


It is toast you fried the crank/connecting rod, by running it low on oil.
Its hard to say what caused the oil leak, but now it is ruined.

Can't find the oil drain plug on Troy Bilt with 5.5 Honda engine


You may want to look under the deck. They sometimes put them there. And if it is a self propelled, you will probably need to remove or loosen the plastic cover that protects the self propelled belt.

You are looking for a nickel sized plug that has a square peg. Use an extension piece for a socket set if you don't have the proper plug removal tool.
