Bought a Troy TB110 oush mower at end of last summer. I stored it all winter without opening box. I got it out today, put together and started it. It is leaking oil and blowing white smoke- What do I need to do?


You must have stored it with the spark plug end down. This has caused the oil to get by the rings and on top of the piston. Pull spark plug out and pull starter cord to clear excess oil , put plug back in . Check oil , start mower and let it run until the excess oil burns off and some of it may still be in the muffler. Mower is ok. Some body borrowed my mower and did this resulting in the same problem.

where is the oil change plug


The plug is under the mower on the bottom of the engine. Make sure you take the spark plug wire off before you work, remove the blade (it needs sharpening anyway right?) and then tilt the mower on its side WITH THE CARBURETOR UP. position an aluminum cake tin under the mower so that once you remove the oil plug using a 3/8" ratchet you can set the mower back down over the cake tin and it will catch the oil. Don't forget to put the plug back in =-)
