I have a 120 for 25 years. Love it. My hydro leaks about a pint to a tank of gas. I have never been able to find or pinpoint where leak is. Oil runs down from what appears between battery box and ?. I found another120 a few years back. Got it running. Started leaking in a similar place. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have a ford snow plow mounted and use it often. Leak gets my paved driveway all spotted up.

:wave: Welcome to the forum! Which 120 is it? That can make a difference in figuring this out.

To be clear, are you leaking gas, oil or both?

Welcome to the forum! 

 

I have not owned a 120, so I'm just going to generalize.  Does the leak drip only when the engine is running or all the time?

 

If it drips when the engine is running only, that tells me it is a pressure leak, and I would look for a bad seal, loose bolt, or a loose hose.  If it leaks all the time, it could still be a seal but more probably a gasket or (worse yet) a crack somewhere.

 

The best way to find a leak is to get it cleaned up and put it to work and actually see where the problem is coming from.

Ditto what ben said. The first step is to identify the leaking area by cleaning it up, running it, observing, and taking notes and photos.
