Hi, Check the oil reservoir breather that it's not plugged up. The oil should be returning back to the reservoir not going to the filter. That tells me that there is air being pumped into the engine (oil).
The piston rings could be broken or the carberator needs to be readjusted.

Open the air screw abit more on carb. Then see what happens. Good luck.

Leaking oil


1. Make sure that the air filter for the carburetor is clean/dirt-free; If not, clean with some gasoline, squeeze out the excess gas, replace and try starting.
2. Check to see if there is too much oil in the sump (the place where oil lives in your machine!) Too much oil may cause machine to slow down or stop. If the oil supply expands it can thwart motion of the parts it lubricates. Check to see if the oil level is above the 'full' line. If it is, drain some (but not in the garden soil!).
3. Another possibility is that the spark plug is fouled; look for oil at the spark gap. If there is no sign oil, clean/replace plug after checking the gap, reinstall plug (no more than a quarter turn more than finger tight) and try again.
4. Ask your mother!

Why is my exhaust leaking oil and blowing out grayish color smoke


Your piston rings are worn to the point that oil is getting into the cylinder and some is being ejected through the exhaust and some of the oil is being burned causing the grayish smoke.

I found a HORSE tiller that i re-furbished and got running.. The problem now is, there is a metal port on the engine just beneath the carb that shoots oil out the engine.. Is this for the air filter to...


That sounds like the crankcase breather valve. It should have a rubber hose running from it to the air filter mounting plate. But it should not let oil blow out of it, I would replace the breather and hose and that should take care of the problem. The breather is held in with two screws just remove and replace. There is a very small drain hole in the bottom of the breather housing just make sure it is down so the oil will drain back into the crankcase and not run out.

Engine oil coming out of air filter


If the tiller was lying on it`s side the oil would flow into the carb. and filter.
You will have to remove the carb. and wash it out. Check there is not too much oil in the engine.

Oil gushes out of air filter hole.


Oil normally comes out of the air filter area a little bit, but over time, once the oil rings start to wear, more and more oil comes out. So you can either have new oil rings replaced, or you can put in a crank ventillation valve in there and it often helps slow down the oil from entering

Troy built cultivator will only idle 26cc 5yrs old


Problably not sucking air, but not getting enough air. Does your cultivator use gas/oil mix or straight gas? If it is a gas/oil mix the muffler is probably stopped up with carbon and cutting off the air flow. Try removing the muffler and see if it runs better.

Oil In the air filter


Back pressure. You will need to tear into the mantis and replace all the gaskets. You can do it the cheaper way by going to Kragen and just buy a tube of gasket sealent, or you can go to mantis and order the rebuild kit. I recommend the gasket sealent for me that has always worked better
