Honda HR214 Leaks OIl

My HR214 is leaking oil on the lower right side of the engine. It appears to be coming from the seam where the engine block and lower casing come together...a couple inches from the oil filler.

Any thoughts? It appears to be getting worse.

The only real fix would be remove the engine and replace the gasket. It is a fairly involved job on that mower, probably not worth worrying about. Watch your oil level, if the leak gets worse you will have to decide whether the old beast is worth spending time and money on. If it were mine, I would fix it. I have the later HR215, best mower I have ever owned.
