Gas in the oil

Hi All, I have a 13 HP B/S engine which runs fine except for the fact that if I forget to shut the gas valve off the crankcase fills up with gas,how do I fix this problem?
Engine Mdl# 28M707. Type. 0122-01. Code. 960430ZD.

Thanks

I think I can answer this one. Rebuild the carb (including needle valve and seat) and adjust the float correctly.

That and put a Dymo label above the key that says "Turn off the gas!"

Just kinda messing with you. I know some equipment has a solenoid that cuts off the gas....but you didn't tell us what type of machine the engine was in.

Should not have to shut it off everytime.
Your floats sticking in the carb.
Remove clean and rebuild with a new kit.
Also going to have to change the oil and remmove the spark plug and pull it over a few time to flush out the extra gas.

Once you get it apart your going to find there built so there's only one way things can go.
There's pins that will only line up one way with the gaskets and metal plates.
Just make sure to clean off any of the old gaskets left on the metal.
