I have what was a meticulously maintained Craftsman 23 V-twin Intek lawn tractor. 15 years old didn't use a bit of oil. Today I rolled through some dog $hi* and hosed off the front tire before the engine cooled. I knew I shouldn't do that, but figured the water wasn't hitting the engine block. Apparently it was, because it started leaking oil after I started it.
I'm assuming the is block cracked, but wonder if it could be anything else. If you can think of anything else to check, I'd appreciate it.
