Sounds like it is the valve seats. However normally it will stop smoking after is runs for a while if that is the problem. Does it run good? Because if it isn't the valve seats then it is the rings. Or a big scratch in the cylinder wall. Then most of the time it will loose compression. If it isn't smoking real bad then you can get an additive to put with your oil that will make it stop, maybe? It is about ten dollars and you can get is at most autoparts stores. It will just take a couple ounces of it. Follow the directions for how many qts of oil you have. After you change the oil in the motor take a magnet and run it through the oil and see if there is pieces of the rings in it.

SOURCE: i've been trying to start

I had the same problem. It turned out to be a blocked carby and the way to fix is as follows;
- remove air filter
- start mower (assuming it now starts)
- place open hand over carby hole and then remove. The force of the spinning blades will **** through the blockage.

You may need to prime it first.

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: It will start and almost

First confirm that Oil, gas, spak plug and air filter are good. Also check the bowl bolt. The jets feed through the center of this bolt, there is a tiny hole in the center, that feed from two more holes near the base of the bolt head.If the hole is clogged or plugged it will not let the engine to start and run.You can use a small jet drill to clear the hole. The brass jet on the bottom center of the carburator float bowl gets clogged with sediment.When you take it off a bread tie wire & come carburetor cleaner are all you need to clean the jet. Take care when putting on the bowl as the sealing gasket (large o-ring) must seal perfectly otherwise the primer bulb will squirt fuel out of the bowl instead of priming the carb .A 5/16", 3/8" & a 1/2" socket (& ratchet) carburetor cleaner & bread tie or garbage bag tie wire are all you need to complete the repair. It helps if you drain the gas tank before you begin. Or you can just pinch off the line with a vice grip. ---------- Drain the float bowl - it's possible that a drop of water has found it's way in, blocking the jet. While the bowl is off, check that there is a decent flow of fuel.
These engines are prone to breaking the inlet pipe that runs across the top of the cylinder from the carb to the inlet port. This will cause similar symptoms of it is cracked.
--------- This should help.Keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

Yes, its most likely spot-welded, that's not mean to be taken apart there. You have to remove the larger cover that includes the part that is spot-welded on. But first you will probably have to remove some large plastic parts. Just hunt for the screws, there will be several. Some might be hidden under labels. Good luck, Al K

After hot engine wont start and smells like gas

Most likely causes are bad engine coolant temp sensor OR leaking fuel injectors. Bad engine coolant temp sensor will give computer false reading and computer provides wrong air fuel mixture. Leaking fuel injectors will load the engine with raw gas--just like flooding it. Try pushing the gas pedal to the floor and holding it there when cranking when hot. That forces the computer into "clear flood" mode and it shuts off the injectors. If it starts up with pedal down, that would be a sign of leaking injectors.

You probably have dirt in the carburetor. Or, you may have water in the fuel. As long as you have spark, then there is nothing else that it could be. Unless you have taken it apart already; have you done this?

Briggs and stratton 6.5 Ohv dies after running for about 10-15 minutes. I let it sit awhile then runs again. This is a vertical shaft lawnmower engine.

This is a classic symptom of a blocked fuel cap vent. Next time it dies, remove the cap, wait 30 seconds or so (for carb to re-fill), then try to re-start. If it works, replace the cao.
