When I started to take things apart I noticed when I turn it over the engine there is air that comes out of the bolt hole that holds the belt guide. Is that that normal?? It's the one on the right.

yep that's normal

I figured out that the hole goes all the way to the inside of the engine when I forgot to put the bolt back in and oil was leaking out LOL

awol, on my Bush Hog D4-10's, the Wisconsin TR-10D & TRA-10D's use a bell housing, so it has 4 tapped holes, the bottom 2 just above the oil line. I even knew the holes went all the way through, but one day in a rush, I grab the engine sitting on the floor of my shed & head to the shop. The oil WAS still in it. I look down to see oil all over my boots, & a nice trail all the way to where I picked it up! :rolleyes: Not one of my best moves!:rofl2:
