    Polaris Virage 2002 1200 Red Oil leak

    Hi all, I'm trying to find an oil leak and think it's coming from directly beneath the oil pump. I can feel two bolt heads and a plate? that feels loose when I reach under the oil pump. Most of the oil is collecting below this area too. Anyone know what this plate is and if it can be a source of an oil leak?

    Thanks
    Doug

    Correction, the oil appears to be coming from the bottom of the stator not the oil pump as previous stated. The two bolt and plate are on the bottom of the stator. Anyone know what they might be for?

    Thanks

    Is your engine carburetor or fuel injected?

    I suspect the oil is dribbling down from the oil pump, or likely from one or more of the oil hose connections. The oil would travel down the outside surface of the flywheel cover.

    Possible, but less likey, is oil getting into the flywheel housing through a leaking front crank shaft seal, accumulating there and then leaking out of the flywheel housing past the gasket at the seam.

    There is no plate on the bottom of the flywheel housing. I suspect you are feeling the two large engine mounting bolts behind the front lip of the engine bed plate.
