So I have a Noma snowblower. It has a techumseh 10hp motor. My problem is that oil is leaking out of the breather filter. Doea this just mean I need a new breather.

leaking as blowing out when running? if so look for over filling of the oil, check compression as rings could be shot allowing oil past them and blowing out the breather.

Is the oil level in it's operating range, maybe over full ?? What are the engine numbers ??

If the lever is normal it might be the breather is getting plugged up and sticking or unable to drain back to the engine the oil is separating out of the crankcase vapors.

Ok so I know that the rings are ok. I had the motor taken apart last year because it was blowing fire out of the exhaust. Found out that all it needed was new spark plug and carb wasn't adjusted right.

I put gasket kit on it last year. The only thing I didn't do it was the breather on it. It had been sitting for about 5 years at the family farm before I got to it.
