White smoke would indicate a fuel problem. The engine is flooding.
There are a lot of possibilities but the first area I would check is the carburetor float level and inlet needle.

Briggs & Stratton Vertical OHV Engine 18 hp blowing white smoke engine run great but a lot of smoke and also have oil being spit out of the black hose that come from engine to the carb.


Check your oil.

If it is overfilled, milky, or smells like gas. Your going to need to change that ASAP. It sounds like the float has stuck in the past or is still sticking, and it has flooded the crankcase with gas, which has mixed with the oil. And because it is overfilled it comes through the breather hose into the carb. This also explains the smoke most probably because the oil is spewing in the carb through the breather and being burned.

Hello,

Start by checking the oil level. It should not be overfull. If it is it will smoke, and it will soak your air filter , then foul your plug.

Briggs and Stratton 22hp v twin OHV smoking badly


First thing to do is pull your dipstick and check for broken or missing O-ring also as you pull it, look to make certain that it was seated properly and all the way locked. If either condition exists, you will be leaking into the crankcase which will cause your symptoms
