Question about Kohler 22HP Replacement Engine SV620-3202
Knocks when I start and kill the engine. Burns oil on startup. Runs good otherwise. The problem started after I hit a root last year. Also, it takes more cranking before it starts.

a stuck float in the carb can cause this as well as old gas do to schlack build up from gas evaperating the carb should be removed and cleaned with carb cleaner and old gaskets replaced a carb kit will run about $20.00 and avail from small engine shops.
the engine number will be needed for the right kit at the bottom of the engine where it mounts there is a flat boss with a number stamped that will be needed for parts.
when the engine is stored the best thing it to run the engine and shut off the gas and run till it stops this will get ride of the gas in the carb there will still be a small amount left in it but follow recommended long term storage prep from the manufacture. hope this helps

SOURCE: Kohler 5E, initially water pump
You did not say what fuel you running the motor on??? It sounds like it may be LPG or Propane.... is so then it seems as though you do not have enough surface for evaporation...

SOURCE: White smoke pours out of exhaust on my SV730 Kohler engine when I start it. Then it stops and the engine runs good. I think it is a bad valve guide or a valve isn't seated right and oil is running
If you filled it up with oil yourself, then you might have put in too much, Ive done that a few times myself,, try ansd drain a little, about two to three ounces, then try to start it, make sure to do this when its cold.
