Major Oil Leak

Hi folks, I'm in need of some help here. I own a 42" Murray rider with 14.5 Hp B&S. Model Number 42910X92a can't seem to find the number for the engine.

My problem is a major oil leak that I wanted to get repaired. I tried to trace the leak and as far as I can tell the gasket between the split is probably the culprit. The area by the spark plug also suspected.

What I am looking for is an exploded diagram of the engine, and some instructions on how to go about this job.

I am trusting that you folks here can point me in the right direction.

You will need the model and type number off your engine in order to locate an illustrated parts list that shows and exploded drawing of your engine.

This may help you locate your engine numbers:

Once you have your numbers, you can go here and find the IPL.
