SOURCE: leaking

Only real way is to empty and clean and dry the tank and stand on tissue paper and fill very carefully, then wait till you see the tussie getting wet, then give that spot a good sealing.

Leaking oil from reart diff

Where is it leaking from? Around the edges of the cover?
You may need to make a new gasket for it.
Drain oil by remove lower bolts and slightly prying on cover so fluid starts draining.
Slowly make your way up to the top bolts until it's completely empty.
Remove cover, clean old gasket off housing and cover.
Attain gasket maker from any auto store, and spread a even amount around edge of housing, where the cover and housing touch..
Replace cover, fill with oil, and see if this stops the leaking. If not, you may have just rusted out the cover, after years of wear and rust (depending on the year of the vehicle) and may need to simply replace the cover.

Only major problem is it would be leaking from the side or where the drive shaft enters the housing, which would require new seals, and a bit more work!

I hope this helps!

I inherited a Laser 55 with an internal fuel capsule. If I hook up the internal capsule tank the kerosene fills up the fuel sump but once the kerosene fills the entire sump the kerosene will literal...

Hi John, I would say it is leaking because the needle valve in the fuel sump isn't shutting off the fuel flow once the level is where it needs to be. The sump is vented to atmosphere so the fuel will gravity drain to the sump. The fuel sump has a float like a lawnmower carbuerator. You can take the sump out and clean it and that may help. Kerosene will sometimes gel after it has sit a while. Carb cleaner usually does a good job. Let me know what you find. My uncle worked on these heaters for 20+ years then trained me. I have an old non working Laser 55 that has some good parts on it if you are ever in need.

It started leaking when filling with water...why?

I've had to replace the internal hose three times where the water connections are. It is a "Y" hose, that is not sturdy, and a defective design. I've had this washer for three years, and this keeps happening. If you look carfuilly, you'll find a hole at the "Y" junction.

Husqvarna YTH2448 engine leaking oil

That sounds like the sump gasket is leaking, sometimes the briggs machining at the sump and head areas are a little rough and a bad fit can allow the gasket to blow,if it is leaking it is actually sucking air in rather than pushing oil out while it is running. You would have to drain oil, remove the engine turn it upside down,remove the oil pump cover plate( 3 small screws) pull oil pump rotor and drive shaft out,remove sump bolts,replace gasket and reassemble.Be sure to use a light coat of gasket sealer like black silicone.
