I would say that you have worn or cracked piston tings and perhaps in need of a new head gasket. After you have had it running for awhile and then shut it off for a short period and restart it does it smoke as much as it would after waiting for an hour?With any sort of luck maybe your engine has not seen much use and will straighten up.You might try some sea-foam in both the gas and crankcase to help clean up the engine.You can get this product at most auto parts store.I have been using it for thirty years in all my engines small and large and think it's an excellent product. Best of luck and thank you.
