Blowing Oil out of the exhaust

I have a John Deere riding mower with a 15 hp kohler with overhead valves. Changed the oil this week. Found gas in it. Not supprised since I almost tipped it over on a steep slope the last time I cut the yard last year. So, new oil,filter, spark plug. Cut for about 30 minutes, run fine. Next time. Cranked fine. Run for 2 minutes. Started spiting, sputtering, smoking then died. Wouldn't restart. Waited about an hour. Cranked run fine for 2 minutes and the same thing died.
Now, have read on here and done the following. New spark plug, took gas cap off, no difference. Here's where the problem really got bad. Took the air filter off cranked it and it started blowing oil out of the exhaust. You could see the gas gush into he carb. What do I do now? Thanks in advance.

Is it overfull with oil? Does the oil smell like gas again? Gas in the oil is from the carb leaking, so if you didn't fix the carb, it probably still leaks.

Check the float and needle; may have bent a tang or something like that when you flipped it.
