When I changed the oil in my L2800 a month ago, I put the recommended amount of oil in, but after it set awhile (and everything drained to the bottom) the oil level on the dipstick was about 1/4 inch above the full mark. I did not think that would hurt anything and have used the tractor several times since then. However, last night, I noticed a small pool of oil on the ground below the tractor, about in the middle of the tractor, below the steering wheel area. Could I have damaged something keeping too much oil in the engine? It was too dark for me to look more closely for the exact location of the leak, I'll check tonight.
Any help is appreciated.
