Kohler 15.5 getting gas in the oil

(I bought the engine used) Is this a blown head gasket? the mower runs fine for about an hour then shuts off and will not restart until it cools down. I changed the oil when i bought it (3 wees ago) and it was full of gas. I checed it when it shut off and it has gas in it again.

No, the head gasket isn't the cause. The carburetor is. It needs to be cleaned and possibly a needle and seat.
