    Yes. I was reading in one of the threads about how easy it is to bend the valve cover so I bought a new one. Put it on today.

    I've got an kawasaki fh541 17 hp that smokes on start up, but then stops. Sometimes no smoke. sparkplugs foul up. Uses about 1 ounce per hour? makes hissing noise on shut off. I sometimes over fill becomes it uses so much oil. Does not smell like gas. What's the deal??
