Obviously fuel is flowing but not being ignited. Check spark plug and replace with a new one, then check for spark using a spark testing tool if still having problems. You need three things to get it to fire: fuel flow, spark, and compression... Hopefully the motor still has good compression, but check for spark problems first.

Sounds like you have blown the exhaust gasket. Not a difficult repair .. just undo the exhaust manifold bolts and remove the exhaust. Purchase a new gasket and reassemble with the correct torque settings.

The carb is not closing down properly. You will need to either rebuild the carb or just replace it. Basically the float is staying open after you shut the machine down. Please rate

Smoke coming from the left side of the engine


this may be due to an oil leak getting onto the manifold or the manifold is cracked and exhaust gas is building up in the engine.

if smoke is intence and black this indicates oil.
if it is mid and grey blue this indicates exhaust gas


get checked by a mechanic


i hope this was useful.

Starting engine


If this is the V8, you might have a leaky fuel pressure regulator that is seeping fuel into the vacuum control line that attaches to it. If this happens then this extra fuel gets into the intake manifold and causes the engine to be partially flooded when an attempt is made to restart it. If the vehicle sits long enough or sits overnight this extra fuel will evaporate away and the engine will start normally. When the problem is occuring It usually will misfire for a bit or even stall once and often there will be a puff of black smoke out of the exhaust when it does restart. The regulator is located on the left hand side of the engine above the intake manifold. It's about 1-1/2" in diameter and about that long with a small vacuum line attached to the end/top of it. If you remove the vacuum line and can detect even a trace of fuel in it [liquid or even vapor] then that is most likely your problem.
