PostSubject: B&S 16 HP OHV Single Damn Smoke   B&S 16 HP OHV Single  Damn Smoke Icon_minitimeSeptember 27th 2012, 8:17 pm

ok so im building a speeder project i got i think a 03 craftsman lt1000 6spd its got the B&S 16hp ohv single first day i got it i took it for a ride in the trail the engine was warming up to normal operating temp when i noticed it started smokeing so if mooded the tractor scence then. I put new plug in it/oil/cleaned the fuel tank new line/well it still smoking and seems to only do it when going over bumps or when the tractor is uneaven? The oil level is at the correct level. I dont know wth is going on maybe something to do with the valves or?

Is it oil smoke or fuel? If it is bumps or when sitting uneven, could be carb related, is the float set correctly?

Make sure motor mounts are tight, they can sound like a knock.

Make sure it is not a light tapping or ticking, that would be excessive valve clearance.

Run it till it blows, buy another!

I've had many briggs engines that smoke, most are light smokers, and will run forever if you keep the oil full.

Some single cylinder engines smoke if revved high.

Just watched the video, and yep, it sounds like a rod going out. Wouldn't run it any more, it may let go and put a hole in the block.

If you a really lucky, maybe you can just replace the rod. Anything more and it will cost you more than a another used motor.

Yeah the guys over at heymow and atlma.us are pretty strict on the "safety" on builds. I think its more annoying than anything haha.
