Why does your lawn mower when on its side put oil up in the carbeurator and causes her to smoke?

It is natural for fluid to seek its own level when a container is tipped. When you turn the mower "on its side" for blade removal/installation, do not turn it on the carburetor side - turn it to the oppsite side instead.
