Oil leak with Yanmar engine
It appears that I have an oil leak toward the bottom of the engine: the skid plate has oil on it (not hydraulic fluid as I first was thinking)- mixed up with a bunch of dirt and crud, so that was making it kind of hard to really tell.
Can't really see much with the skid plate. Have yet to change the oil, in which case I couldn't say whether the leak could be coming from the drain plug.
I'm not losing a lot of oil, just enough to make things messy. Level registered on the dip stick is down only slightly.
It's kind of irritating in that I have so many things to do and I was figuring that a newer piece of equipment (a 2103 demo unit that had like 11hrs on it- I'm around 38 hrs now, I believe) wouldn't be looking to suck time from me.
Anyone run across something like this? (again, I'm going to be changing the oil before too long so I'll be seeing if it's the drain plug- but, really, a new machine with a poorly fitted drain plug?).
