I'm guessing that you primed the engine and that you are going to paint it Kohler blue

hahaha that would be something The engine is painted in Rust-Oleum high heat bar-b-que paint. The blower housing is Aqua, also from Rust-Oleum, made sure to prep all the non-heated surfaces with primer, after all this hard work, it better last a few years

.... well, this unit proved useful for spring cleanup. After all the hardwork, the engine started to smoke oil (go figure ) Any suggestions? Their is no serial numbers on the unit. Never rebuilt a kohler before, and not sure if I wanna take on the task. The fine smoke is consistent with intermitent puffs of heavy smoke with throttle. Probally less then 15 hours on oil change.
