I have a craftsman push mower with a 6.5hp B+S that is 3 years old that doesn't run. It all started when I hit a large rock and bent the blade last summer. When the blade started hitting the ground I turned it off and tipped it on it's side to check the damage. After I replaced the blade I mowed a couple more times with it then it wouldn't run anymore. While trouble shooting I took out the air filter and what looked like oil and gas mixed together (thick like oil but yellowish) started leaking out. It hasn't run ever since and I have no idea what the problem might be or if it's related to hittng the rock or not. Any ideas of what it might be or if it's fixable?

Thanks

Gas & oil mixed together would just be really black and very runny (thin).
Yellowish in the oil sounds like water. Might have bent the shaft. I'd give it a good cleaning, oil change, new plug and see what happens.

Thanks - hopefully I'll have some time to work on it this weekend.
