    I was on my mower (52" Toro Zmaster 27Hp Kohler) and it started to sputter and smoke would come out (not much but a little) there wasnt a loss of power that i could tell...when i engaged the blades it got a little worse...What could this be its only got 129 hours on it..i was thinking maybe spark plug but idk the oil has always been checked and never ran dry...what could this be I WAS AFRIAD SOMETHIN WOULD GO WRONG AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SEASON!!!

    Any input/advice anything would be fantastic
