Start with making sure your oil lever is not over full. If it is it may be getting into the crankcase breather hose that goes to the carburetor hence the white smoke. Sometimes also you can blow a gasket in the breather system and it will do the same. Check for oil leaks in the breather system. Hope this helps. donnyb60

Set the mower on a known flat piece of concrete. Now look at the deck and the support connections where the deck hangs from from the mower. Should be adjustments such as pins with clips or threaded bolt hangers which will allow you to raise or lower the corner of the deck which is low or high. Conversely you could have put a blade in upside down or left out a washer making one blade higher than the other. Usually an owner's manual will detail this process. As you just changed your blades, as opposed to wear and tear, likely you did not put it back together exactly as you took it apart.

perform a cylinder leak down test, any readings over 30 percent loss means the engine may have internal problems, Many things it could be. Blown head gasket that is blown between the cylinder and oil gallery. Overfilled with oil or gas in the oil from a faulty carburetor. Leaking valve stem seals. Worn piston rings. Hope this steers you in the right direction. Good luck

My experience has been lead peroxide build up between battery terminal and battery cable end. You could wait an hour or so and it usually disolves (only to keep on returning) or you can clean both the battery terminal and cable clamp and reinstall using electrical anti-corrode grease (even use electrical paste used when connecting copper to aluminum wiring) The root of the problem is different alloy of lead used for battery post and cable clamp or the tinning on the cable clamp. This incompatibilty causes thge formation of the temporarty oxide interface.
