Q:

Craftsman Push Lawn Mover leaking oil from top, what do I need to replace?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the mower. The part that you put the red box around is the engine breather. If the engine is leaking around the breather, you can try to seal it. To seal the breather you will need to clean the top of the engine with brake cleaner. Then lift the edge of the breather and apply a bead of RTV sealer. Let the sealer set up for 8 hours. Then check the oil level. If the oil level is fine, start the engine and use the mower. After you turn the mower off let it cool before you check for leaks. If no leaks are found, it should be fixed. If it is still leaking, you will need to replace the engine breather. The part can be ordered from the following link. Craftsman engine breather.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance on the mower.

The correct way to repair the engine is to remove the flywheel. This type of repair is more than the average customer can handle. That is why I recommend applying sealer under the lip of the breather. If you think you can handle removing the flywheel, it is recommended. I have posted a link below that will sow you how to remove the flywheel. Once the flywheel is removed look at the seal around the crankshaft. If it is leaking, it should be replaced. You cannot add sealer to this seal. I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Removing the flywheel can be tricky. Thread the flywheel nut back onto the crankshaft so that it is flush with the end of the shaft. Then have a helper grab on each side of the flywheel and lift the unit off the ground about an inch. Once he has it lifted, hit the flywheel nut pretty hard with a hammer. Just make sure to hit it flat. If you hit it off to the side, the nut or crankshaft could bend. This will usually pop it loose. The crankshaft seal is part number 20 in the image above. This seal will be right below the flywheel. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for adding the image. Good job sealing the breather. It looks good. The part that came off is the engine brake pad. You might get by with the epoxy. Let the glue cure for the recommended amount of time and try it. Please let me know how it works.
