    My 12.5 is pumping out smoke and burnin some oil. What can i do to fix this. Is it a gasket that is going bad or what? Engine is probally 10 yrs old.

    Thanks

    Could be your piston rings unfortunately. I would do a compression test and check.

    Also, at the top of the Mechanic and Repair section, there is a sticky that says to put down the Model & Serial. Might want to do that before Restorob requests you to.

    Is this a 460V?
