What could cause an oil leak in my Snowblower (model:247.88970 )?

I see a large puddle of oil underneath my snowblower. It doesn't appear to be coming from the oil drainage line (metal tube) but rather the housing. What do I need to do to check it out and fix it? Is there a gasket or other part that could fail and cause this?

Check the other oil plug that is on the base of the engine that is shown in the image below. If the oil is not leaking from this location, you could have a leak in the crankshaft seal or the crank case (shown in the lower part of the image). If you can find the location of the oil leak and need more help, resubmit your question with additional details and we will assist you further.
