I have a Tecumseh LEV120 6-HP engine on a lawn mower.

Oil leaks from around the breather and runs down the side of the engine. The engine doesn't smoke at all, and a compression test indicated 90 PSI.

Does any one know what could be causing this?

Thanks! :thumbsup:

Spewing Oil

sounds to me that you simply just have to much oil. check your dipstick and drain oil till you get the right amount.
