    Prime setting is gravity feed. It sounds to me like your needles and seats are leaking. You will need to dump the oil and replace it. If you check the level on the sight glass I'm betting that it will be very over full.

    Yep that makes sense just strange that it was fine for so long...

    Maybe starting it after 2 months has soemthing to do with it. Old fuel. I'm not sure

    Looks like very "watered" down oil to me...

    Is just replacing the oil fine? No fuel left over in the engine anywhere?

    You should also take the plugs out and turn the motor over to expel excess fuel from the cylinders.

    I push it in gear with the plugs out to expel any fuel ... then leave it for awhile so any residue evaporates , with no oil in it and the drain and filler plug and filter off as well
