Oil leak

I have a mulcher which is equipped with Briggs & Stratton Single Cylinder L Head 4 cycle engine model number133432 Type 0041 Code 95051107. It is running OK and no smoke is generated but the oil is leaking. I have put the new brether but the problem continues. Would appreciate if someone could guide me with the problem

Exactly where is it leaking from? Around the breather? Try to snug things up a bit all away around, if that doesn't fix it, don't use any stop leak stuff, get the gasket replaced.

If the engine is greesy like all mine then clean it all up and watch for where it coming from.

Areas likely to leak on a horizontal shaft engine: Sump gasket; crank seals; oil drain.
