Intek 190, Smokes, Fouls plug

I picked up a bluebird lawn comber c-18 From a hardware store late last year. It was a former rental, and I didn't get a chance to run it until the weather broke here in the north east. I changed the oil, air filter, fresh gas, new plug. The motor smokes (white ) real bad and the plug will foul after about 15 minutes. any Ideas, Should I be ordering a new motor from northern tool ??

Thanks Tony,

I was thinking in that direction, Northern Tool has the motor for about $230.00. So when it gets slow I will replace it.
