M274a1 4 cyl oil leak

Post by PRueff » Mon Nov 16, 2020 10:14 am

Seems my mule has developed an oil leak where the mag mates to the block. I don’t have a gasket there and didn’t see anything in my gasket kit from Emory mules that even came close to fitting it.
It’s been a while since I had any chance to tinker on it. So this is a new issue.
Help!

Update...
Found the issue with the oil leak! Blindly I pick up the mag to reinstall over the weekend and left the gasket on the bench. Problem solved...

Don't you love it when the problem is easy (and cheap) to solve?

I don't know much about the 4-cylinders, but I did look at my -35P TM and it does not list a gasket with the magneto. It does not make since that it would not have one, as the 2-cylinder has one, and the mounting base is basically the same. Anyway, glad you were able solve your leak!
