Hello all.
New to the forum. I am working on a 13 rancher 420 for a friend. he just bought the machine. 900 miles on it. It was ok taken care of I think before this. I stripped the machine down and trying to fix anything I can find while doing the regular maintenance.
I took the oil filter out to replace it and noticed it smelled a lot like gas. Not sure if this is a common problem. Did a couple google searches and found mixed answers and nothing definitive.
Oil looks fine otherwise and the filter smelled a lot worse than the actual oil.

Something to be concerned about?
I dont think rings would be the issue. Could the injector be stuck open when shut off leaking gas into the case?

Any help would be appreciated.
