My recently acquired TO-35 with Z134 engine has quite a bit of oil around the left side of the engine. Upon further inspection today after running it for awhile I noticed a fresh stream of oil just below the front most spark plug. It almost looks as though it's dripping off the spark plug.
I was in the process of removing the loader from it so I can clean it up and work on it when it started to pour rain so I had to stop.
Any thoughts about this? My initial thought was head gasket, hopefully that's all it is and not something more serious.

Sounds like a compression test is in order. Hope it's nothing major.

It could quite possibly be leaking from the plug, have you changed the sealing washer on the Plug itself. If it is lower than the plug it could be the gasket.Wash off the area around the leak and then run the engine and watch where it is coming from....John(UK)....fergusontractors@hotmail.com
