Briggs vanguard 18hp spraying oil
oil coming out out reed breather and i took dipstick out and oil spraying out of there also. the engine did not smoke and started right up. After 10 minutes it will die out.
I pulled the heads and gaskets look ok no breaks at all. No i'm upset because i bought a gasket set and it may not be the problem. Someone else told me it could be the engine case gasket but i don't see how that would cause it to have postivie pressure. Can someone explain that to me?
I read that it probably was the heads because they gasket leaks and send pressure into the pushrod area into the crankcase but i see that that's next to impossible because they are connected really. there is a external space to the outside between the push rod hole and the cylinder.
On another not i looked underneath it and the electric clutch is soaked it oil and dirt.
