simplicity riding mower spitting oil from the air filter. help!
HI everyone., I'm new to the forum.
I have a Simplicity Regent riding mower 18hp, 42" cut hydrostat mower. I start it up and she runs GREAT, I absolutely love this mower, but heres the PROBLEM:
When I engage the hydrostat mower (engage the blades) it takes a second and then the mower SPEWS OIL from THE AIR FILTER area. I have not pulled it apart yet, I plan on doing it this weekend, but I need some advise on what is causing this. What should i check, do I need to order a part, I was assuming some valve was sticking open or something? Any ideas? Any help is greatly appreciated, mowing season is upon me and I need to have my mower up and running because my yard is too big for a push mower. Thanks in advance for any help!
