You said oil in gas but did you mean gas in the oil ? Does the oil smell like gas or over full ?

Oil is blowing into the housing for the Carberator Airfilter from a rubber hose coming out of the engine

The mower is also blowing alot of smoking from the muffler

If a piece of trash got under the float needle valve the carb. could have flooded and filled the crankcase with fuel, This would cause it to do as you explained so my question still stands.

Does the oil smell like gas or over full ?

The oil is not overfilled. The oil doesn't smell like gas. I took a little oil out to bring it to the add oil level on the dipstick and it smoked alittle less, but still considerable. Thanks for your help

What are the engine numbers?
If it's an OHV engine, it sounds like a blown head gasket.
