Hey my lgt 165 is leaking oil from behind the pto mounting plate it looks like the bearing seal or something can someone tell me what the part is and what I have to do to fix it. I’m fully capable of ripping the engine apart but isn’t really prefer not to. The part hanging on the shaft covers the hole so I’m hoping it’s just a bushing I can replace. Thanks !

There should be a seal outside the bearing there! I'd change both. Here's the Service Manual for these.

I hate those newer seals. The older ones were tricky to get in without damaging them but they never fell out like the rubber coated ones. I've used super glue on them a couple times. Clean the oil off really good and put the new seal in. Be Careful not to damage the new seal.

 

They get pressed back inside the hole only about 1/8 of an inch. Flush with the block then 1/8" to 1/4" max.

 

 

Is there a gap between the bearing and the crank? Maybe just a shadow?

 

 

Hope the bearing is ok. If not the whole engine has to come completely apart.

Just the shadow. The bearing is fine. And iv already ordered one. But I’m just curious about the depth. Does the outside of the seal sit flush with the block? Or does it sit 1/8 of an inch in?
