    I have a 14.5 ohv. briggs vertical shaft that blows the oil back through breather. I replaced the head gasket but problem persists. Where to now?
    Thanks for any info.

    Pretty sure I saw a post on here about a bad breather valve or what not. Try doing a search for it.

    When you put in the new gasket was the block erroded any? I just
    did one that was seriously erroded and didn't want to seat correctly.
    Did it start this all at once or gradually?

    How old is this engine ? Can you take a wild guess at about how many hours you may have on it ? You mite post the model, type and first two digits of the code numbers.

    The head and block showed no corrosion or not rough . I polished it with a fine crocus cloth. Not enough to cause any metal loss.
    Thanks again
