Murray Lawn Tractor


I have a Murry Lawn Tractor Model# 425600x8A.
When I tried to start it, gasoline poored out through the exhaust. At first I thought it was water.

Thank You

Ditto that; I can't see what else could cause this.

your oil will be full of gas as well, be sure to change it...
(the same happened to my neighbors)

Thanks for everyone's help. I removed the carb, blew it out with air compresser, and installed a new gasket. There wasn't any gas in the oil. I also took off the valve cover and replaced the gasket.
It now works fine.
