My 314 broke it's timing gear today. So, I know I need to replace that, but I'm reluctant to totally rebuild it. It's never used any oil until it was about time to change it. That includes the 90 degree plus days I mow for nearly 3hrs. Today after it died, I pulled the air cleaner and there was oil in the bottom. Not a lot, but it doesn't belong there. I really wasn't wanting to replace much on this engine. It has been running smoothly and not making any noises. What else will it most likely need besides the timing gear?
