When I wanted to put it back to use I did rebuild the carb and chang the oil and gas but when I started it up thin oil like it had gas in it came shooting out the air filter. what is wroung. It is shooting out the hose that hooks to the bottem of the air breather and connects to the moter. I think it is for reburning the exhaust

Sounds like you over filled it with oil. Only reason for oil to come out of these places.

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.

I HAVE A 18HP BRIGGS TWIN CYLINDER AND I NEED TO KNOW WERE THE ADJUSTING SCREWS ARE


On my 18 HP, if you are facing the engine and the flywheel is on the left, the adjusting screws are all under the air breather. The best way to get at them is to take the breather mechanism off right down to the carb. They are all on the left side of the carb!

Oil in air breather


sounds like you have too much oil in the engine (should normally be around 500-600ml when there is too much oil, it gets past the piston rings and pushes it through to the head.
