    Default Riding Mower Oil Leak Help(Pictures)



    Front of mower with cover off



    From the front looking up at head.



    From right side of motor.

    Its a Husqvarna with Kohler Cougar Motor. 20HP

    180 hours.

    It doesn't seem like its leaking from the head but further up. Not sure what the metal box with the OHV stamped on it is has a line to the air box. Sure would like to avoid taking it to a dealer if at all possible. Anyone have any ideas?

    That OHV stamp on metal box = overhead valve cover. Has a gasket and thats your leak.

    So after looking through the service manual appears to be the valve cover gasket that is close or near gone.
