Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Oil is leaking from the vent of the fuel pump? Is oil level overfull? Does oil smell of fuel and very thin? Oil is forced out the vent of the fuel pump when pressure from the crankcase is too great. The engine breather is hose in the air intake housing just before the carburetor, and the breather is in the block where the hose comes from. Is the breather line open. ?
