More likely a blown gasket head. A leak-down should tell you if this this the problem.

1st thing, check your dipstick up inside the cap part of it and make sure the O'ring is there and in good condition.
2nd, make certain when you put it back on that you get it on straight and firmly seated. They will only seat one way properly the other way creates a leak into the crankcase and causes oil consumption and smoking. You should be able to tell if it has been improperly installed by an excessive amount of oily dirt accumulated around the threaded area of the cap

first make sure the air intake screen on top of engine is not clogged with debris if thats not a concern you could have a faulty ignition coil etc your engine should have a two year warranty and can be serviced at no charge to you at your local briggs service dealer make sure and check your manual for the fine print though. Briggs makes a great engine and very rarely have I ever seen a problem allthough if you were to have an engine issue it will accur during the first few hours of opperation good luck

SOURCE: Sears Craftsman riding mower V belt getting chewed

I believe you may have the belt over one or more of the belt retainers next to the pulleys. They are 5 or 6 inches long and about a 1/4 inch in diameter. You have to loosen them when you put the belt on then adjust them to where they are just barely touching the back of the belt. They keep the belt from jumping off.

White smoke or semi white can be produced in several ways. One way is oil this is normally a whitish blue to blue smoke and has the apparent smell of oil being burned.

Blowing white smoke out of exhaust


sounds like it is still overfilled ,, oil is leaking on the back side of the piston .. or may be a blown head gasket and being overfilled was just a coincidence if it is a briggs motor I would be suspect of a head gasket.

My 07 KTM 525 blows smoke and uses all the oil arter 2 hrs of riding, It was sitting for about 1 year and never used oil before


One of the disadvantages of parking a bike for such a long time. One of 2 things have happened.(Or maybe both.)
Valve stem seals have hardened.
Rings have become gummed up.
Either way you'll need to get the head and barrel off. I've heard of mixing a table spoon brake fluid with a cup of petrol and running that through the carb. I dont recommend it as I've not tried it. Rather try something like valve ease. Dont use it too often. The graphite tends to clog filters. I've also used acetone on my 4X4 but be VERY careful. Use only about a teaspoon full per litre of fuel.

What would cause white smoke from the front of my


It could be your valves. My friends mower was blowing a lot of smoke and I think some oil. I replaced the valves and it runs like a dream.
I can't remember the steps to remove and replace, sorry.
If you are mechanically inclined it shouldn't be that hard. The only problem I has was the new valves (keeper or whatever holds them in place) was different than the old one.
You could call a repair shop and get an estimate.
Good luck. Let me know if this any help.
