I was mowing my field today and took a break. When I walked around to front of tractor I saw oil dripping from the front. When I saw where it was coming from it apears that the front pully where it goes into motor is leaking. Is this a o ring or seal of some sort? What kind of job is this taking apart and how long? I kind of want to do it but want to hear from maybe somebody who knows or have done it. The motor is a 14 hp Kohler on my Jacobsen 1450.
I looked at the manuals from here but I did not see anything and then ran into my two man. limit. ( I have no problem with the rule but I did not download the right one so my bad):confuse:

I think this is the manual you will need.

Just an update, I hosed everything off and it all cleaned up nice. I checked the oil and finished mowing the field. After another 45 mins. or so of mowing I was done and parked it. It is not leaking a drop!
