Oil spewing from Breather Tube

I have a Craftsman Snow Thrower Model # 247.886640. I replaced the carburetor because I had an issue with it starting. Once it was replaced, it started immediately but once it ran a little, oil starting coming out of the Breathe Tube. Is this repairable or has this snow blower seen on its last days?

With the carburetor work you may have gas in the oil which thins and overfills the crankcase. Check the oil first and change it if you find gas there.

New carb may have float stuck which will allow gas to fill crankcase. Change oil first and see if this takes care of problem if still dose it sometimes taping on side of float bowl will free float Worst case take float bowl off and pull float down.
