Customer Question

I have a McCulloch 42" rider. 20 HP. Mod M20 42T. Mod 280820. The transaxle is leaking gear oil onto the tire. The manual says let a dealer fix it cause it has oil for the life of the mower. I got the oil seal out and tried getting oil passed the bearing w/ little luck. A new trans axle maybe $500 not worth that to me. I'm wondering if I take the gas tank out I can get access to get the oil in. I managed to get another oil seal ring.

I won't get charged the $5?
Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 2 years ago.
I will check into that. I don't handle that part of the system. You should not be charged based on what information that i can see and the fact that you did not receive a reply from anyone prior to your having the problem solved yourself. Thanks
