    How much oil? soaked? dripping?
    How many hours are on your unit?
    Has the unit been used a steep slopes?

    The filter has a lot oil. Bought used and restoring. Don't know how many hours. Runs good plenty of power

    The unit may have been tipped on its side?

    I jack up the back of the mower with a winch to sharpen the blades but have not tipped it on its side. Also, I noticed it sometimes backfires.
