LT1000 Blows Smoke

fairvufarm143September 30, 2011

After about 20 minutes, my LT1000 with a B&S 17.5OHC engine starts to sputter and blow blue smoke. Changed the oil, confirmed it is not overfilled. What's next?

If there is no sign of fuel entering the oil, I would think that you have a start of a headgasket leak.

Thanks! I will start with the headgasket replacement and go from there.
