Troy Bilt Horse Rototiller is leaking gear oil

TomatoPatMay 12, 2012

My troy bilt horse rototiller (purchased in 1978) is leaking gear oil after use. The gear oil comes out of what I refer to as the "breather" (not sure what the term is) on top of the gear case. I brought it to the dealer and he said that the plug was unavailable due to the age of the tiler. What can I do? Any suggestions? Thanks.

That likely is a breather, the gear case could be over filled. Is there a plug on the side of the case about halfway up? If so with the machine sitting level put a can under it and remove the plug. When oil stops running install the plug.
