Smoking after riding for about 10 minutes.

Are you sure your oil level was not over filled..if there is smoke there is oil being used..have your compression checked..sounds like your rings and cylinder walls may be worn and when hot oil will be forced past the rings and remain on the walls and into the firing chamber and ignited and partially burned...I.E.the smoke out the not over filled and compression is ok..have the crankcase venilation checked by a service garage...good luck..

Out of the blue the 2 cylinder water cooled Honda started blowing White Smoke

Does this machine use regular transmission fluid? If it does, check to see if there is a small line (normally rubber) that runs from the carb to a transmission diaphragm. If there is, disconnect the line and tap it. If trans fluid is noticeable in the line, you must replace the as it contains a rubber diaphragm inside which goes bad eventually leading to trans fluid being sucked into the carb and though the exhaust which creates large amounts of white smoke.

J power and smokes white

Possibly a head gasket problem (as the head heats up it warps slightly, allowing coolant to seep into the cylinders, which is the source of the white smoke--steam) Is the motor using coolant?

I hit a metal pipe with my cub cadet zero turn lawn mower today. Now it smokes under the deck when I engage the blades and it is not cutting the grass. Have I ruined my mower?

You'll need to look under the deck w/ the mower not running and see why the blades aren't turning. Most likely something is bent (maybe blade) and hitting something. The smoke is probably from the belt slipping and getting hot.

TO-30 quit running, puff of smoke from electrical? Won't turn over

It is possible to have the solenoid go bad but not while the tractor is running as it is only used to engage the starter. It sounds like the wires to the starter is shorted out. I would run a hot wire to the solenoid from the battery to the solenoid and see if it will start. Just be sure everything is grounded. If the ground cable on the battery is ok you should not have a problem with running a hot wire to the solenoid. Just touch the hot wire to the starter and then release it when the starter engages. Hope this helps.

Using smoking

by recently, do you mean, since it got hot outside? if you're using a multi-vis oil, it gets too thin in hot weather and will "vaporize" and burn, not enough to cause smoking. use a good 30 weight oil. other than that, can't think of anything else that would cause it with no leaking or smoking
