I noticed a drip on the bottom of the lower seal and the deck has some spray on it... not too bad... my 3060 LB

My Rule is if it leaks, it needs to be fixed. I and a few other guys have run a mower once with out a seal, but its got no power. Id cut the rest of the season then replace it in the winter..
thanks imaLawnBoyFreak.... cause my grass needs a cuttin and I just shined her all up.... glad to find out it's not ultra-critcal
thanks Just Plain Al, I don't know how these motors work and was concerned a leak would cause some sort of piston/cylinder damage
after a tank and a 1/2 of gas

ok the 3060 is leaking 5times that much! plug is black and sooty :sad_02:
