Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
I have a 1987 craftsman riding 17 horse mower. I have changed the spark plug, but it still have heavy blue smoke when I mow. I have alwasy changed the oil etc. This is the first problem.
Smoke is fine as long as you keep adding oil!!! Rings are worn,,,

Sounds like the rings are worn and letting oil escape past them into the cylinder head. After all, it's been in service a long time. There are several options, including a rebuild with boring out the cylinder and put oversize rings in, buying a new engine and replacing the old one, or just buying a new mower.
