i started the 18 horse up and the left hand cylinder drips oil from the sparkplug and it burns oil any thoughts? Sent from my LG-P769 using Tapatalk


Firstly, with oil above the piston, you may have either a hole in the piston, or excessive blow by. The oil actually coming out around the spark plug suggests either lose spark plug or even worn threads.

If your switching for a 16 horsepower engine, to an 18 horsepower, then the deck will be fine.
