Hello all!  It's nearly spring so I've been doing a bit of work and noticed the JD I picked up last year for very cheap has an oil leak.  I've already fixed one and now found another.  It's a fairly slow leak and originates underneat the carb and oil filter and it appears to leak from where the engine meets the steel of the mower frame and it even seems to be coming up and out of one bolt.  The bolt starts under the mower and goes up through the mower frame into the engine, where I can see the end of the bolt on the top side of the engine it appears to be coming out of the threads.  I'm looking for a quick easy fix *if possible* like jb weld, weld etc.  If a cheap fix isn't possible I'll delve into something more in depth if I must.  Here are some pictures, hopefully they help!

 

Thank you for any advice.

The crankcase gasket on your Kawi has failed. The lower sump end of the motor is under the frame, the rest of the engine is above. There is quite a bit of suction on the sump. Part of the gasket has separated from there and got folded or sucked in.

 

The gasket goes for about $20-$25.

 

11060-2483 is the Kawasaki part number, or the JD part number is M143232.

I have a question. Did you run that through a wash or is your stuff always that clean?

Nothing I own is very clean, I just wiped this down to find the leak :)

Ok thank you, I'm not sure how difficult that is to change, I'm assuming I have to pull the engine - is that a safe assumption?  It's a slow leak, I'm wondering if I can just keep topping up the oil for now?  I'm guessing I might lose a tablespoon for each grass cutting.

Yep, pull the motor. Remove the pto clutch and the drive pulley, drain and remove the oil pan. Flip the engine over, clean and install new gasket. Make sure to use a sealant to keep the new gasket in place and triple check it when you start to reattach the oil pan.
