What is this?

Recommended Posts

This is a 12 hp Kohler from a C-125 blackhood. Can anyone tell me what the black round object on the engine block is, and why would it be weeping oil while the engine is running? How do I repair this? Thanks  Mark

It is the reverse end of the governor shaft. Interesting I have 3 12hp in the shop. two have what I would call a welch plug (e.g. recessed a bit like my picture).  One has what looks like the picture above standing proud of the block.
