Yanmar YSE8 oil change/fill question?
I have an oil fill at the front for the crankcase, and one at the back for the clutch housing. I was told when changing the oil, I ONLY had to empty from the front and that both would drain as they were one and the same. I then filled both with fresh oil, but seemed to have to add more directly to the clutch housing. But now the crankcase seemed to overfill, and I'm leaking oil from underneath somewhere...I imagine I've weakened a seal somewhere The other odd thing is that the clutch oil is CLEAN and clear, but he crankcase oil is it's usual BLACK....if they're one and the same for filling, and draining, how can this be? Can someone please clear this up for me once and for all? THANKS!!!!!
