    I did my first oil change a few days back on the ole shovel. The oil drain plug just has a copper or brass washer on it, and I notice a slight weeping around the plug. It doesn't seem to drip or run down that I can see; if I put my finger under the plug right where it meets the tank it will have a little fresh oil right there. Should I be concerned? Does the washer need replacing or is this pretty standard?
