If you have oil in muffler, do a comression check test for ring issues, better yet do a leakdown test, (small engine shop can do this) if air pressure is coming out fo crank case then you have a bad ring, also check the reed valve under the valce cover, this allows crankcase oil / vapor to be drawn back in the intake. A leakdown test will reveal more. Also possibly an intake valve seal.

Do a leakdown test and check ring status first, check for pressure on this test in the crankcase dipstick, that will help identify an internal ring issue/ Also check the intake valve seal

I am trying to find the exhaust manifold or whatever the pipe is that comes out of the generator and connects to the muffler tube, I have a generac np50g, any ideas where i can find it?


WHEN THE ENGINE IS COLD put your hand on the muffler. Where the exhaust comes out is the rear of the muffler. Now go to the front of the muffler. The pipe that goes in is the one you are looking for. Keep following that pipe along until it joins the body of the motor, and you have found what you are looking for. Please rate this answer.

I changed the oil and white smoke poured out of the exhaust. Also there was oil spewing all over.


Depending on if you laid the engine over on its' side, there could have been oil in the muffler. It may take some time to "burn" this off. It will also come from the muffler. Given enough time the oil will get hot and smoke off of the muffler. Then it will no longer smoke.
I hope this answers your question.

"Learn to like smoke for awhile. Smell the aroma". Pardon the humor. I couldn't resist. Chances are there is oil built up in the crankcase. It is going to take some time for the oil to dissipate. How long? I don't know. It all depends on how much is in there. Cleaning the muffler is no help since the oil burning is coming from the crank not the muffler. If you are careful, and keep a vigilant eye, you could cut the gas/oil mix in half to 64 to 1 instead of the normal 32 to 1. That would mean only 2 ounces of oil per gallon instead of the normal 4 ounces. Let the crank add the rest. This will help burn the crank oil excess, but BE CAREFUL. When the crank drys up you had best not ride until more oil is added to the gas.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

The smoke is oil going in to the combustion chamber, will have to check for broken rings or piston. also if the tractor was stored in a position that the oil would run to the combustion chamber it will do that untill all the oil is burn
