If your model # ends in 707, as in 42A707, it does not have an oil filter. You would see it sticking out of the left side if it had one, as in 42A777. You have an opposed twin,a very good engine, unfortunatly, not made anymore. Most of them did not have an oil filter. Dwain

6.5 briggs and stratton leaking motor oil through the filter area


How does it run? Is it back firing through the air filter box area? And although your stating it is oil is it actually oil or gasoline that is black due to getting dirty? Don't shoot me! I'm going on what information I'm reading what you submitted. If oil is it enough to show up quickly on the dipstick/engine oil level ? Get back to us and we can go further.

Most all B&S air cleaners mount directly over or on the carburetor. If not able to find it, get ENGINE MODEL NUMBER (NOT LAWN MOWER MODEL) and look it up online or go the B&S website and type in the model number. It will show you blow up diagram.

Need to Change the oil


On most likely the right side of the engine is where you will find the oil drain. It will likely be in the form of a pipe with a cap. On most of these models the will not be an oil filter. Briggs and Stratton recommends SAE 30 engine oil. Also log on to mtdproducts.com and you should be able to download an operators manual. The model and serial # are located under the seat.
