Question about Simplicity Garden
Engine only runs with the choke on. Have rebuilt the carb. If I shut off the carb the engine runs backfires and stalls after about 30 seconds. Any ideas?
Check the slow running jet for glogging, set the mixture screw 2 turns from fully closed and make sure the small filter connected to the fuel tank is not blocked.

It sounds like you took the carb off the engine and did not replace the gasket or tore the gasket and it is sucking too much air. Also check to see if the carb and bracket ( if it has one ) are on straight.

It sounds like you are putting it into choke mode. The choke is usually all the way up on tractors. And it will make it backfire and flood out. Just rev it high enough to work and don't go into the choke mode. hope this helps.

I suspect an internal engine issue such as a valve, the white smoke was oil and it could mean a bent, burned valve or damaged valve seat causing the valve stem seal to leak allowing the engine to **** some oil and burn it (the white smoke) and now you lack compression. It is less likely but possible the oil was overfilled and you "lipped" the piston which causes the compression to drop. check the compression, 100-120 is normal, less than that means bad internal parts.
