Could be that the needle is stuck in carb, or else the fuel pump diaphragm is bad. Check the pump, thats what I would check first.

SOURCE: Ok i have a problem

It appears that you have a slight mis-adjustment in the idle speed and idle mixture. To adjust setup, start with at least a half tank of fuel, and have engine at operating temperature (That is warm but not overly Hot). The Briggs & Stratton Website manuals section should show the locations of the adjusting screws if you are not sure of them.
To adjust idle speed set Throttle control to minimum and adjust screw on throttle butterfly to maintain a good idle speed. To adjust idle mixture, screw in idle mixture screw (Lean) until motor falters and then screw out (Rich) until it falters again. Correct setting is the halfway point of these two positions. You may have to re-adjust idle speed again and also the mixture to get best running.
If you are not comfortable doing this, take it to a B & S dealer.

Crankcase is full of fuel


Lacy:

The float and needle valve in your carburetor are not working as they should. The float should force the needle valve into the carburetor body to stop the flow of gas when the float bowl is full. When the float and needle valve do not work as they should, the gasoline keeps flowing into the float bowl and into the carburetor, and into the cylinder where it flows past the piston rings and into the crank case.
The carburetor needs to be removed and cleaned.

Spark plugs foul immediately


Fouled plugs may be caused by oil leaking into the cylinder. Does it smoke when running (cold), are you using up the crank oil. Black smoke is excess gas comsumption, blue smoke is oil burning. If your plug is fouled with black carbon, you are most likely running to rich.

The fuel pump works off vacuum pulses off the crankshaft. More than likely the carburetor needs to be removed and cleaned out. This is a common problem with some Briggs engines.

see if the oils coming out of the rubber hose by the air cleaner ,if it is it could be the pcv valve the rubber hose is connected to. order could be too much oil in the engine, sometimes the carburetor will flood the crankcase with gas , you have to rebuild the carburetor and change the oil.
