Hi Guys Just wanted to see if many others have had any oil leak issues on new Kohler Took it into repair. They found leak and removed engine oil filter and the backing plate. Checked O rings etc put back together and tested ok.
Got it back and after one lawn it was leaking again. Took it in to repair and they now think the plate behind the oil filter some form of plastic may be warping with heat and then leaking. There is only one bolt in the centre holding it on.Buying Advice.
SV I have a friend with a Gravely zero turn, it has the 20 hp Kohler Courage engine that everyone loves so much. He said he was mowing when the deck lost power and then he noticed oil coming out of the bottom of the engine. This guy doesn't know engines from apples so he didn't ask exactly what that meant or how they came to that conclusion. He was ready to scrap that otherwise excellent Gravely zero turn so I asked him if I could look at it.
I picked it up from the dealer and they said the "bottom seal went out I brought it home to look at it. First off I figure the deck is fine, the loss of power was just a result of oil blowing on the belt.
I checked the shaft, they had already removed the belt and pulley so the shaft was bare.Forum Rules. Home Forums Reviews Articles Store. Homepage Today's Posts Search Register. Forgot your Password?

So i was going to mow my yard before i started to work on it. Thought it might just be filter was loose tighten the filter a litter but still leaking oil. Still leaking oil, looks like right behind filter so check oil level and decided to mow first made about two round then all of sudden oil brew all over me and i was wondering if there is a oil ring or seal behind that filter and if it is fixable without pulling the whole engine and how hard it is to fix Thanks Derrick.

If your engine has an oil cooler, the seal for the cooler could have issues. Re: Oil leaking from behind oil filter 27hp kohler engine Having the wrong filter can make for big problems. Not making certain the seal from the old filter was not stuck to the aluminum block and now you are trying to seal the new filer and its seal to the old seal which does not work.
Removing the filter you now have would be step one to allow you to check more closely. If there is no old seal stuck to the block, you have the correct filter for certain, carefully reinstall the problem filter. Are you doing the oil and filter changes yourself and never had a problem before? Failing to oil the rubber seal on a new filter can lead to problems as can over tightening. Dave M Re: Oil leaking from behind oil filter 27hp kohler engine what do you mean by seal on oil filter be grinched.
Re: Oil leaking from behind oil filter 27hp kohler engine So if your particular engine doesn't have a plastic base where the filter screws on with a couple of hoses running up to a cooler, just put a new filter that says Kohler on it Out of shape, Twisted when installed and not sealing correctly. Do you have any mechanical capability? If so, remove oil filter and assess sealing surfaces on block and filter and if unsure what you're seeing post pics here.
If not, take it into your dealer. Re: Oil leaking from behind oil filter 27hp kohler engine I took the filter off but it looks like it is leaking from right behind the filter area before it had a drip, i will try changing the filter and see if that helps.

Results 1 to 9 of 9. Is it common for these engines to leak from seals? Is there an engine breather somewhere around that areawhich would shed some oil? Oil is actually dripping on mower deck when I am done mowingand engine is hot.

New Kohler 26.5 hp EFI Oil Leak
I too thought it was from the oil filter it even seemed to be loose. BUT it was comming from behind the pto unit the seal was real loose and just popped out when I messed with it.
Got a new seal for a few bucks. Mine had about hours on it then. Oh and it has always ran HOT!! Mine is definitely leaking I saw it clearly tonight after 2 hrs of mowing. I removed the front grill or front of the machine. Just 4 bolts and a couple wires, The hood came off with it, Then I think I took the belt off and removed the bolt in the middle of the PTO unit. Un plugged it and I think I even took off the engine muffler and metal heat baffel, then pulled the pto off.
It came off easy. Right behind it is the seal.
Took a pointed punch I was going to punch a hole in it, screw in a sheet metal screw or two and pull out the seal, but it was so loose I just worked it out. Then got a new one. Found an old piece of pipe slightly smaller than the outside of the seal and tapped it in.
Clean up everything. Really only an hour or two to do it. I think it was a 2 beer job. You may be able to do it without actually removing the muffler but It made it easier to see everything and easier to get things cleaned up. My local Cub Cadet dealer had the seal only 3 or 4 bucks.
That oil really makes the deck a mess,but it won't rust?? Let me know how ya make out! I feel much better because I know I have the time to do the job I'll let you know how I make out.Width is side of blower housing to opposite side of blower housing.

Kohler Courage, leaking oil
If you are looking for top tips of tipping experts this is the perfect place for it. It updates regular seemingly on a daily basis and there is a great chat facility should you have any questions. The competition is the best one carried out online and has a lot of fun. I have just one objection. According to the rules so far, the best tipster is the one that has the biggest profit without considering at all yield.
In my opinion this is wrong. OK yield can lead someone on chasing big odds and this can also be a problem. But if we stick to the profit, then there should be for sure a maximum number of picks made or units that are used.
I believe that no one with a normal life can follow a tipster that makes 1000 picks per month.Bordeaux vs StrasbourgGame Date - 08-12-17 19:45 Bordeaux vs Strasbourg: This match is referent.

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann will miss Sunday's Spanish league game at Real Betis. Griezmann was left off Atletico's squad announced by coach Diego Simeone on Saturday after he failed to recover from an unspecified injury. The club had said the player felt pain in his right thigh following Tuesday's 1-1 draw at Chelsea in the Champions League. Shkodran Mustafi will miss Arsenal's trip to Southampton on Sunday as the Arsenal defender has not recovered from a thigh injury.
The Germany international was forced off early on in last weekend's 3-1 defeat to Manchester United and will sit out the game at St Mary's. Mustafi, who made a mistake to allow Jesse Lingard to put the visitors 2-0 ahead inside the opening 11 minutes as United left the Emirates Stadium with three points, had been enjoying arguably his strongest spell in the Arsenal side since joining in the summer of 2016.
