All:

I have a very functional 850 that I use to blow snow, push things with a blade, and mow. I took this thing down to the chassis, cleaned, rewired, and painted when I first got it.

I have an oil leak in the battery area that simply soaks everything, but when I look at the engine, it is clean - I can't figure out where in the world it is coming from.

Any ideas?

Thanks.
Caleb

Is the battery or gas tank leaking? Could it be oil/grease from the pto?

Is there a bolt in this hole?
if not it will shoot oil out all over the place

Bingo!!! I had my doubts about that hole...

I can't keep my stinking belt guide tight - it would continually looks and start making awful noises, so I just took it off.

Will check into it today...

Thanks again!

Do you have the right belts on there? Maybe the belts are rubbing on the guard?
Is the belt guard correctly seated in the groove?

I think it's as simple as a lock washer and washer (spacer) to fix it.

Thanks again.
