Front End Engine Plate gasket oil leak// easy fix?

Postby YunLung » Sun Dec 30, 2018 12:06 pm

Hi folks!

I recently discovered a bad oil leak at the lower end of the front end engine plate of my TE20 petrol.
It seems the oil runs through the the gap /seal between engine block and plate and not through the timing cover seal.
After just 2 minutes of engine running I took the picture attached.
As the tractor is a daily worker at our horse stable, my question would be if this is an easy fix and what I have to consider or buy spares...
Is it possible to just remove timing cover, cam and crankshaft sprockets and the plate for resealing?

Any advice would be well appreciated.
If this a a big job, I would postpone it until I have more time, reassemble everything as it is and just put a cloth underneath when storing away after work.

Thanks Amit!

Also in this thread (with a lot of replys yet :D ) a short final reply from my side:

This job has been done properly now.
We disassembled the front ent, put new seals everywhere and reassembled it.

New cooler works fine, no oil leak after 2 hours of mowing.

Everything is fine finally.


All the best!

I missed this first time round, must have been too busy eating turkey leftovers.
