go to an auto parts store and get a can of gasoline additive called seafoam. Read the label so you know how much to add to your 6 gallon tank. This stuff works wonders on outboard motors.

Extra oil is a symptom of dilution from gasoline. That would also explain the smoke and slick. The question is whether it is a broken diaphram in the fuel pump, or a stuck carb needle and seat?
I would guess fuel pump first.

I would expect more pressure than what you have recorded. Remove the muffler and turn the engine over slowly while watching the condition of the piston, ring(s), and cylinder wall. If there is severe scoring of these parts, suspect that the machine has been operated with no, or insufficient oil in the fuel. This will require replacement of the cylinder, piston, and ring(s). If you farm the work out, you can expect a substantial bill for parts and labor. You might compare this cost to a fresh machine. Hope this helps!
