hi all, did an oil change on the massey mf12 and after using the tractor for some work i noticed quite a bit of oil had blown out of the ...breather drain holes?...i'm talking a lot of oil, to the point i had to add more to keep it full. after i add more it continues to come out...it's not a steady flow, i think it blows out in spurts...the tecumseh manual gives a few possibilities why this could happen....excessive speed, usually use just half throttle or two thirds at the most...over fill, put in what the manual calls for 2.5 quarts......i'm stumped as to what may be going on with this thing...is it possible a new breather assembly could be the issue?...thanks for any suggestions anyone can offer.:confuse:
