    When I got her out of the shed from winter this is what I encountered. Oil ring on right side, right below drain valve Oil stain surrounding the engine on the frame Ran with white smoke Seemed to be choking out with a rhythm to it, the smoke would increase with the rhythm When engaged deck all...

    Hi guys, I'm new to this forum, so if I make some mistakes, please understand me. So I have a hydraulic problem with this old JD.

    I don't mind an oil leak on an old machine, but not on a brand new E110 with 3 hours on it. I mind very much when the leak is from the valve covers and the oil drips directly onto the muffler, causing a very smoky condition and the potential for a fire soon after you start it. I was curious...

    Back again. So the grass got tall while I was dealing with the hydraulic pipe repair. The MFWD shaft got completely wound up in grass. Took an hour to clean out.

While apart replaced piston rings and bearings, reseated valves in head. Put it all back together and it ran the best it ever has...

    Hello all my first post here so I hope I posted this to the right section. I have a Z225 that is leaking oil out of the bottom of the motor, I believe it is the crackshaft seal.. But i'm not 100 percent sure, the leak is right by the oil filter but the oil filter itself is not leaking. Anyway...

    My 425 AWS with Kaw 20hp motor has a slight oil leak from a valve cover. I snugged up the bolts but they were not really loose. Does anyone know what type of gasket is used on these valve covers and if John Deere sells them individually?
