i've spent many an hour reading thru the archives here to get to this point lol. Trac i set the carb at 1 1/4 and 7/8, and tried adjusting it between in half a turn and out about a full turn.. didn't seem to affect the smoking and it seems to run just fine at the initial setting (will set it when i can put a load on it to try to tune it). it smoked when i picked it up.. just ran it long enough to get it on and off the trailer. I think it was rode hard and put away wet in it's previous life, since it has a FEL on it with several weld repairs, and the plugs i took out of it were blackened over really heavy. the tube to the valve cover appears unobstructed and i get a little puff of white smoke from it while it runs (not anything alarming.. barely noticed it).

i also assume the tractor sat dead a while since it had no battery and no gas in it when i picked it up. I'm going to try the ATF thing with the cylinders and give it an oil change with new filter and see if that helps. i think i know where the spring goes now (thanks Richard!)

sorry for the long winded posts but trying to give as much info as i can to narrow down my problems. the only questions i have left are in reguards to a spring for returning the throttle rod on the carb to the screw? and whether or not i'm doing damage running it while burning some oil. the last thing i want to do is damage the motor further.

ATF is the thing to try before start the engine with dry cylinder walls. Smoking is the oil coming up past the rings. Oil past the rings is either stuck rings or worn out cylinder walls or both. I bet on both. This site sells engine kits. A few people here have been through the engine. The wife's TO-20 showed up needing repairs. I told her, either pull start to use it, or spend money and make it turn key. I got the credit card. Still not done.
