Yesâ€¦. its beckons to be askedâ€¦ WHYâ€¦??? just why?? Or why botherâ€¦?? Yes, go ahead and roll your eyes hereâ€¦ LOL Here is itâ€¦. I have a new to me, Husq lawn tractor [ 59 hours on the clock when I got it.. ] has gas seeping in crankcase issue, I discovered when I did my first OCI. Yes most likely a float/needle issue I plan to address as soon as I can find a suitable replacement carb. Since then, I've installed a gas shutoff valve on the fuel line and did 3 OCI. On one of those OCI I drained and reinstalled the same filter as it had less than one hour service, so IMO its still a new filterâ€¦. gas in new oil smell remains - suspect it came from the filter and possibly residual gas-oil in the sump.. This filter is now drained [ 95%? ] sitting open in my shopâ€¦ just letting it air out.. until next year or whenever.. Has anyone ever tried to clean/clear out a filter of oil/contaminantsâ€¦?? Yah it seems sillyâ€¦ thought id ask before I start tossing new filter in the recycle programâ€¦ im funny that way. Any constructive or face-palm comments welcomeâ€¦ ... Cheers J.
