Remove and clean out the carby bowl it will probably be full of oil , you cant tip a 4 stroke engine over for that reason.

What causes a lot of gas in oil on 8.5hp B&S

This would be caused by a sticky needle valve on the float in the carburetor.You have three cures 1. remove and clean the carburetor internally. 2. replace the carburetor with a new one. 3. or most simply buy and install a fuel shut off valve and turn it off when not in use. make sure you change the oil 1 4 ID LINE GAS FUEL SHUT OFF VALVE TECUMSEH BRIGGS

How to change the oil. Without turning the machine upside down how can you changew thew oil? There is no plug that I can see.

I don't know what brand/model you have, but mine has a Tecumseh engine, and you empty the oil by removing the oil filler tube and tipping the engine to the side (per owner's manual). There is no plug.
