I was working on a Deere 210 with a 10 hp kohler motor.
When you start it, it smokes for a few minutes then the smoke stops.
He said that it only uses a little oil. He mowers for about 1-1/2 hours and it uses a little oil ( less than 4 ozs)
He does not have a lot of money to have the motor rebuild at this time.
the motor runs good and sound good.
I checked the valve gaps and they are in specs.
The only thing I can think that would could the problem is a worn intake/exhaust valve guide/s.
Why would the motor to smoke for a few minutes than stop smoking?
Any ideas what the problem is?
