Engine make BIG puff smoke! Stop.Smell oil. Oh no!!

4 posts in this topic

Played what I call Chinese Roulette yesterday and bought a Sanborn 6hp heavy duty week whacker-like the DR Mowers. Only cheap. With thirty minutes on it BIG puff white/blue smoke. Bad hot oil engine smell. Stop. I check all and everything seems fine. This morning, just for the heck of it I pull starter rope and fires right up. Stunk a bit. Blew a bit of smoke. Settled down and I just used if for 45-minutes.

I send six rice cookie to whomever can tell me what going on here?

Actually, the machine seems to be very well made and plenty sturdy etc.

Might just have coughed up a lung luger....some leftover cozmoline in the rings or something odd like that. Run it, see if it seats in and behaves itself. Keep your warranty card and receipt handy...just in case.

Keep the rice cookies...I'm good..Thanks. wink

when you hauled it there is a chance it got tipped or oil got sloshed into the combustion chamber causing the initial puff of smoke at initial startup.

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
    • Protecting the rights of the id-oits, for the purpose of teaching others how not to be an id-iot is paramount. It goes both ways.........
    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
