Question about Husqvarna Lawn Tractor 48" Deck, 23 Hp, Model# Yth2348
I have a 3 year old lawn tractor w/ 220 hours on it. It's recently started leaking oil, which appears to be coming from the seam in the engine just about the oil drain. It's a steady leak, but the oil level doesn't seem to drop (according to the dip stick).
What's the likely cause and fix?
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.

There is a bracket on the trans axle release valve that easily rusts and will not open or close fully. Remove the end plate with the hitch (4 bolts) and spray the bracket lever on the trans axle with some rust buster penatrent. Work it back and forth until it moves freely then grease it. Re-assemble and you are ready to mow.
