Hi
Im ashamed to admit but a few seasons ago I accidentally overfilled a Toro 721 snowblower with oil. It spewed oil when I started it. I cleaned it up and fixed the oil level. I used it for an entire season with no trouble.

However, I am noticing an oil leak. I think its still leaking either out of the breather tube attached to the rocker cover or somewhere else in the vacinity of the carb.

What should I be looking for to fix this issue? I am unclear at this point if its residual oil or if I damaged something.

Welcome to SBF Mik777

If you've used it for a season with no problems then it's likely not residual oil from the over filling incident. Maybe that incident did weaken a seal but at this point you likely just need to clean it up thoroughly and then run it for a few minutes at a time and then inspecting it to see where it's coming from.
