I had that problem Lee. It is the oil seal on the motor.

It was down to me not cleaning the area around the oil seal and eventually the grit wears the seal out.

That was about 2 years before I sold it, les fixed it. You will need to get the motor into him.

It is an area you do not think of washing out. We live and learn.

Forgot to add? You can put new oil in meanwhile, there is a oil level plug.

when you tilt the motor back use ur cleaning hose to wash the hauling bracket and behind it to make sure no dirt or render get to it maybe get some grease round there till you can get the machine looked at . i would book it in asap lee, better to get it done now whilst it works than later when its damaged. Theres bearing above the seal which dont cost much but theres alot of work to get to it so you can change it.
