    Oil in flywheel case JS550

    My starter on my JS550 went out the other day. So I got a new starter pulled the old and noticed the starter was kind of wet with oil. So I pulled the timing plug from the flywheel cover and could see it was kind of wet inside there. Isn't it suppose to be dry? Does this mean my front crankcase seals are going out?

    Yes your seal is going out. It is suppose to be dry inside. Unless someone poured oil in there by accident.

    I think some people think that you're supposed to put oil there.
