I was mowing when a cloud a smoke came out the front grill. Having checked the motor old before starting out I was like come on not the motor! It was not motor thankfully. There was oil all over motor, on mower deck, down the frame and inside the side guards. The leak was sucked in motor cooling fan blown through out the engine compartment. It all came from short rubber tube on cooler to 3-way branch. I loss over quart of oil. This was on me for not changing out old lines and sad lesson. 1987 model.
You need to remove the battery and tray to get to this area and once there it’s in easy reach. Good time for hyd filter and oil change as one line needing changed is down under frame so screen needs removed. Likely the belt will be changed that’s ok it was running out of take up. Will need a good washing before I can get back to mowing.
