LX178 oil leak

Rob I have a LX178 John Deere with a Kawasaki water cooled twin cylinder engine that has developed a severe oil leak. It looks like its coming from the crank seal but I have not removed the engine to confirm. Any ideas would help.
ross Either the crankseal or the crankcase cover gasket.

Jerry I have just had the same problem on a GX 345, 20 HP WC engine. I replaced the crankcase seal and the breather cover gasket. Still have the leak. I think the crankcase is pressuring up and pushing oil out the crankcase seal. How does the engine breathe? Will the crankcase pressure up?

Need any and all help. Thanks

Jerry Shelby
