On the bright side got my stand alone heat exchanger all squared away 700 bucks later but she works like a beauty now ! Tech that worked in it claimed those things run and run and run as long as you keep em maintainedHopefully that's the issue.
I like checking the simplest things first
Yes, the plastic covers ? Yes I did. Cover seals as well.did you change the actual valve covers? if its plastic. they warp and will never seat right even with new gasket. they are pretty cheap to replace. if you ever want to check one. take it off and lat it on a table to see if its still flat on the side where gasket goes. been there done that. other common oil leaks. rear seal. there's a back plate that the shaft goes through. bolts are all the way around it..leak would be at the very bottom. This type of leak will only get worse. But really not to bad to fix. Not one you would want to let go for long. seal can start to dump oil rapidly.
You need to look at the oil pressure sending unit, top of motor, under and in back of the air cleaner assembly. Another thing I've found with the Kohler is aftermarket (Napa, Wix, etc.) oil filters leak, and... it's a hard leak to pinpoint. Try an actual Kohler oil filter and see if that solves your problem.So on my Blue Line Champ I've been having a oil leak and as advised cleaned it up located the leak which seemed to be coming from the head cover seals. Put new seals in, still leaks. Ok, maybe the valve cover heads are cracked. Put new valve cover heads on. Ya guessed it damn thing still leaks, why ??? Also from the looks of it seems as though it's a pretty bad leak from the puddle on the plate the engine sits on and also down on the floor where the pump sits. Is the pump leaking ? Is the pump notorious for leaking ???
Ok I'll check that out. Got a local kohler mechanic in my back yard I buy my oil and filters from him so I'm assuming the filter that I have on now is OEMYou need to look at the oil pressure sending unit, top of motor, under and in back of the air cleaner assembly.
