so progressively the blue smoke got worse and worse and worse. i said ok let me think, its not from burning oil. i looked at the sparkplugs. blacker than black can be. i think my fuel mixture was too rich causing the plugs to foul up and making it smoke. i cleaned the plugs and it barely smokes. and i adjusted the carb a bit.

Change your oil too all that fuel is washing the oil off the cylinder

Blue smoke is oil, black smoke is fuel too rich. If too rich, will start out black smoke, then after oil is thinned, it will become blue smoke from the too-thin oil going past the rings & valve guides.

I would suspect that your going to need new Piston rings in the future.If the tractor sat for a Long time,one of the oil scraper rings may be stuck fast to the piston.
Did you ever have the heads off of the engine?
Is the cylinder walls scored up?

i suspect sludge buildup is also in the engine. the oil can be barely dirty, you change it and black and thick. nastiest oil ever.
