I just got this machine. It was started a couple times a year and ran around the yard. It smokes..... sometimes badly......I checked the pump and it looks correct. I did drain out old fuel (even smelt old, like bad), added treatment and new fuel. I was hoping it would clear up. Ran it a few miles today. Runs great! Spins the back tires in high on gravel. It hauled 18 large cottonwood rounds with ease. I haven't read the plug but I would assume that it is wet and oily.
Can the counter shaft oil being a bit high cause this?
Yes, another Polaris 6X6 question. My apologies in advance.
