Last weekend my riding mower will not turn over. Charged battery. Still will not turn over. Hmm, ok. Pulled the spark plug, gas was pouring out. Cranked it over, spraying gas everywhere.

Spark plug back in, started right up, but run funny.

I stopped it and drain the motor oil. I made a huge mess on my driveway because there was at least 1/2 gallon of oil/gas coming out and I had a jar that wasn't big enough. This is with a 14HP I/C B&S, it wasn't suppose to have that much oil (and gas).

New oil and fuel shut off valve, no more smoking exhaust. I'm back in business.
