Hubota T1760

JarekwJuly 18, 2014

When I start my Kubota T1760 a lot of white smog is coming out and after 1 minute engine will stop. I grained gas from carburetor, replaced plugs (but they get black right away too) I checked solenoid and looks like the tip was cut off.
could this cause my trouble?

No, the solenoid would not be causing the smoke. Does it seem as though it is flooding? Is there fuel in the oil?Normally when someone has these symptoms, one would think that the oil is being thinned w/ fuel due to a defect in the carburetor or fuel pump- or a cylinder head gasket has failed. I assume that you have the Kawasaki twin?

how would I check if there is fuel in the oil, just visually check and see how thick it is?

Just smell a sample of it, possibly just the dipstick has enough residual on it. If it has a strong odor of gas, you have a problem as described by tomplum.
