A common thing on those was oil spilling out of the oil fill and running down the side of the engine when the dip-stick was removed for checking the oil level, or adding oil. Another was when draining the engine oil on those, it would spill out all over the frame and drip down and collect on the lower frame cover/shield and you would get a pool of oil there, especially when you tipped the machine and it would spill out, check that just in case.
Then the oil would "Puddle" up underneath the engine block where it mounts the the engine bed/frame, and would leak down and drip from there.
It would drip down onto the transmission area and any undercarriage shields, then drip out onto the ground.
Sometimes you have to remove the engine from the frame to clean it all off. A little bit of oil on the frame will spread out when it gets hot from the engine and look like a major leak.
