Oil leak -- Briggs and Stratton 24 hp ELS725 Engine
The engine on my Husqvarna YTH2448 lawn tractor has started leaking oil. It's a Briggs and Stratton 24 hp ELS725 Engine -- model#446677 and type#0463E1.
It's 3 years old with 220 hours on it. The oil appears to be coming from the horizontal seam in the engine, just above the oil drain. It's a steady leak, but the oil level doesn't seem to drop accordingly (by looking at the dip stick).
Any ideas on what's wrong? Also, is this a common problem with this engine? If not, what's the most likely cause?
