Question about Riding Mowers & Garden Tractors
We havent used it for a couple of years, pulled it out to do mainenance, drained oil and it has fuel in with it , how can this happen , how do i fix
Are you sure it is gas and not water? If it is gas, then it has seeped past the needle valve in the carburator. The needle and seat are very inexpensive and fairly easy to replace.

My name is Dane and I am going to try to help you solve your problem. Are you sure nothing is rubbing outside the engine creating the smoke? If this smoke is indeed coming from the exhaust, I would think that your problem has to be in your fuel. You may have mixed too much oil in the mixture or it has been contaminated with water. Remove your spark plug and make sure it isn't oil fouled. If you find it is, drain your fuel and either clean with a wire brush or replace the plug. Refill with properly mixed fuel and you should be good to go. It may smoke for a couple of minutes until the fuel in the lines works through the carb though. No harm done.
I hope I've helped. If you found this information useful, please leave feedback as deserved. Thank you! Dane
