I bought this 8-25 wheel horse. the original owner said it sat for years. I got it to run like new. But now it wont start and it shows oil spraying from the muffler and the block is leaking from the lower block. Any advice??

Thanks

I think we know why it sat for years. Your going to have to be more specific about the location of the leaks.

I actually used it a few times before this happened. The spark plug has oil and oil shows inside the muffler and the leak is coming from the lower park of the block. It starts for a second and then turns off. Blown head gasket maybe? And maybe it sat so long the gaskets are brittle? I am having a hard time finding the repair manual for this engine. Its a Briggs & Stratton Model 195707-0421-E1.
Thanks for your help.
