Pulled the 128 out to cut grass and started out running great. My yard has a couple small hills and when I went down and up it would start smoking bad. Then it was fine on the flats. Smoke down/up hill.
Oil level was spot on now it's a 1/2 quart low. Left a small spot of oil under the front like it's leaking out the output shaft.
I had a little smoke on start up last year maybe 2 seconds.
Anyone seen this? The only thing I can think of is blow by. Maybe getting positive crank case pressure.
I've never had an engine do this. I have another rebuilt 12 and a 16 to put in it but I don't want really as this is the factory engine. But it's early 70's and never been touched other than preventive stuff
Anything to check?
