WHOA!!!! Who's thread is this???? Just kidding First, my mistake, I do have shims in for the front pulley. Second, my seal looks exactly the same as the pics Scary posted. Third, I took the vent hose off and it's clear. Blew air in it towards tank to be sure. Also blew air gently into vent hose fitting and heard right away as clear as day through the air cleaner. So I'm thinking it's not a pressure issue.

But, is your oil returning to the tank properly?

It's a reach, but I'm really at a loss with this.

Maybe I'll try sprayin everything down w/brake parts cleaner, button it up, run around the hood, then yank it apart to try to tell where it's coming from..........again. I want to try the o-ring thing, but I really don't feel like changing the seal to do it.

Again, this is a reach, but what type of fittings are you using?

Particularly on the return side...from pump to filter to cooler and back to tank.

Same size that came on the motor, 1/4,5/16 or whatever the actual size is. I'm not running a cooler.

So you think I should give the o-ring a try. It does seem like a reach, but if there's a small nick on the crank, then maybe..........

I'm not really sure where they were talking about. If you need the od of the sprocket shaft, I can check.
