hey guys
have mf 65 highcrop w/ g176 gas, found small green leak on floor under inspection cover area.
removed inspection cover found inside(top) of cover was wet and seemed damp inside inspection/clutch area. the threads holding cover definetly where wet where fluid seeped down. very little amount of total fluid but still shouldnt be any. i have seen it wet slightly up around backside of head closer to steering wheel. the motor was rebuilt 4 or 5 years ago as well as rest of tractor and havent had any other issues. any thoughts? tractor is always kept inside w/ heated garage.

I just had a horrible thought. You better hope there isn't a freeze plug behind the flywheel! It must be one on the back of the head, which is almost as bad to repair, or the head needs retorquing, either way, a look with a mirror or inspection camera, or just leave a dry paper towel on the bell housing and see if it is atleast topside.

Not sure on the 176, but it could have freeze plugs on back of block where it bolts up to housing.
