gas in oil...leaks

Sounds like the fuel pump is leaking internally and getting into your oil pan....change the pump, change the oil and filter and you should be good to go. I guess there is a remote possibility that the carb is screwed up and dumping raw gas...but the pump is the normal cure.

As for the oil bet is to clean the engine really good so you can see exctly where the leak is coming from...could be valve covers, intake manifold, timing cover, oil pan....if the leak is hard to spot you can add some dye to the oil which will show you the way. Don't start over tightening bolts....look for the easy spots first like valve covers. Good luck...
