craftsman 247.883700 with new briggs&stratton

Hey everyone got my older craftsman 26 in with a brand new briggs&stratton 205cc 8.0 engine installed from my local hardware store owner I bought it used from him recently and he installed the new engine I had a question on the engine as I mentioned this is a 205cc 8.0ft so is this technically considered a 8 HP engine then ? Also the oil filler tube had to be replaced this week because as I was using machine I noticed oil blowing out near bottom of tube just above where it goes into engine there seemed to be a small hole on back side of tube when the new tube came it also has what appears to be a factory dimple same area as the bad tube but No hole anyone else have a similar engine that can offer any feedback was thinking about contacting Briggs&stratton as well THANKS, DAN

I'm thinking the 205cc would be closer to 6hp.
What engine is it, 900 series, Vanguard, older flathead ??

Briggs and Stratton 13L332-0036-F8 205cc 6.5HP Vanguard Engine

On the oil tube I've had the O ring at the base fail but I've never had a tube develop a hole (yet).

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Kiss4aFrog this is the model number 12A1030148e8 and it shows 205cc and 8.0ft. Lbs on sticker I know what your saying too about the oil filler tube and some times the o ring leaking but this circular impression is above the oring facing in ward when I seen the oil spraying out I found it with my pointer finger by rubbing it if I left my finger over it I could feel the heat and compression so my hardware man ordered an exact replacement it came in and it has the exact same circular impression but as I stated last post no oil came out when I ran it at idle yesterday after installing if you go to the illustrated parts list for this engine model # it doesn't even show up On the picture it's ref#847, part #693617 I just wonder if this is there from the molding process when these plastic tubes are formed maybe mine just was thin at that spot or it got poked thru I almost thought a screw was missing. THANK YOU FOR THE REPLY ALSO THANK YOU TO detdrbuzzard for the warm welcome!!

oil filler tube photo

I've added a photo to my profile album of the defective oil filler tube I had mentioned in my recent post hopefully you can see where my leak was in the image it's right above the flange portion of the tube

any time you see ft. lbs it is torque that they are talking about not horse power

That hole should not be there. Take a look at the engine and surrounding bits to see if there is a screw or something sharp that might have worn that hole in there during vibration.

Work fascinates me.
