Post Briggs Animal Oil Leak
I have a Briggs Animal (basically an unsealed LO206) engine and the magneto side oil seal leaked, resulting in oil all over my engine. I replaced it and it still does it. Eric said maybe a burr on crank. ANY IDEAS? (I am the one who spun on turn 1 on the last lap in the feature a week ago Sunday in the yellow & red PCR).

thanks,

Bob Bethel

Turns out the real problem was no vent hole in the oil collector tank where the valve cover ventilation tube runs. I also added extra hose with a big "U" going low and then back up from the pulse fitting on the engine to the pulse fitting on the fuel pump. This collects any oil, and I can easily drain the few drops collected there back into the engine by unhooking it from the pump and holding it up and letting the oil drain back into the engine. Even with a little oil in the "U" in the hose, the pump works fine.
