    Exclamation Black Grim looking stuff on Engine

    If I run my JD 115 Automatic for a day like 5 hours+ Theres this black grim that starts to form on the engine block. Is this from the exaust? Should I be concerned? Are there ways to prevent it?

    -Thanks

    A picture would probably help.

    Oily or dry grime? If dry, I'm guessing a loose exhaust manifold and/or shot gasket.

    I was originally thinking it was just the Exaust. And it might be. I have no clue. But I just want to make sure.

    I'm thinking some exhaust with some dust and debris from mowing. Anyone else know differently?
