    Like I said in another post/thread........ I am not getting/seeing new stuff on here..........

    When you changed the gasket did you check your valves and such ???

    There are more than a couple reasons for a carb spitting out gas...... That's why I wanted you to watch the video....

    I thought I sent you a PM in your message box....

    OK gents...I did not save the head gasket, it was shredded. However after it was replaced it continued to spray gas out of the previous mentioned areas but the gas no longer mixed with the oil, so thats a win! I bought a carb kit from Amazon and replaced the parts that came in the kit and viola it started right up! Only thing left is the exhaust is smoking after it has warmed up which I am going to attribute to the gas/oil that leaked out when the problem first started. Thanks for the help all in all I'm only out about 20 bucks for the whole repair!
