Fc420v puffing white smoke

Got a older exmark hydro viking with kaw fc420v. Read a lot of stuff on here and have some questions. It tries to start, fires for a few seconds then puffs white smoke like its flooded. I took the carb off and cleaned it really well, but still same thing. People have said it could be valve issue or seals on the float valve seal letting too much gas into the bowl. What do you guys think? I found the manual on here and feel confident in being able to adjust valve clearance.

Does it have too much oil in it? My FC420 does that right after oil changes because I can never put the right amount back in.
All equipment is wore out. <- Never mind. All equipment has been repainted and with new decals. It's like I have new mower's again!
