Wait a minute. I just checked the oil level and oil came pouring out the check oil/oil fill plug. The oil level is way too high. Why would that be? I changed the oil, filling to the bottom of that plug as usual and none was coming out when I changed it. Why is it now, out the same plug, coming pouring out? I haven't had this happen before so I'm a bit confused. I suppose a high oil level could explain the smoke and burning oil, but how did the oil level get higher from when I changed it? Am I doing something wrong? Now I want to open that plug, let the excessive oil drain out, and then start it again to see if it still smokes. Amy I about to learn a simple and obvious lesson? Any help?
That usually is from gas in the oil!

Jamie, kind of hard to tell what the pictures are. How about the oil pan gasket? Another thought is the bolts through the tank bracket are drilled through into the crankcase. I've had some that needed a little sealer to stop leakage. You should be able to see it down the side though.

They are terrible pictures. The last one is the bottom of the flywheel shroud where it kind of sits on a crossmember. There was lots of oil between the two pieces. The second last one was where the bottom right bolt for the flywheel shroud goes into the oil pan. There was lots of oil sitting right up on top. The second picture is looking underneath at the crossmember holding the front of the engine where all the oil was running down.
You actually had read my mind. I literally had just said to my father earlier in the day that it could be a gasket for the oil pan. I had also wondered if there were bolts going into the oil pan or crankcase (the flywheel shroud bolts?) that went into holes drilled right through into the pan or crankcase. I will take the flywheel shroud off to investigate, hopefully sometime this week. The more I had thought about it, the more I wondered if it were something other than a seal. I'm not saying that it's not a seal, but I am saying I've never had that before, if that makes sense.
Anyway, thanks, Doug, and I will let you know what I find out, though it may be a few days. I have a few things on the go at the moment.
