:trink39: hi all, im looking for sum help on a 12 hp brigs motor i just got. 1st of all the motor runs great, no smoking or rough runing. that being said the problem im having is oil is coming outa of the tube that comes from what looks kinda like a pvc valve to the air cleaner. i use to have a 8hp that did the same thing, a friend told me i needed a valve job. is this the case or is there another simple fix for this? i dont know if its a pvc valve or not for sure but you can take it off and inside you can see the valve stems. thanks for any help

thanks bryan for your reply. Sounds like i need new rings. Because its not overfilled or being operated on a steep incline. :thanku:
I dont have a commpression tester, but it seems ok. Motor runs strong even after an hour of use. The spark plug is not showing oil on it. Thanks for any help.
thanks for all the info on this. i ran it today mowen grass for at least an hour and it ran well, for now i just ran a hose down under frame so the oil didnt get all over side of motor and pluged the hole in air cleaner box. i checked oil after i mowed and it wasnt hardly changed on dip stick. guess i will just run it and keep a close eye on it. thanks again
ok, thanks i will try that. that be great if that cured the oil problem. thanks guys:thanku:
