I happen to agree with Tom Arnold here but there is no reason to guess. Start it up, wait for smoke then shut off. Remove the muffler and carburetor and look. If enough oil is passing the guides to cause smoke then the valve stems will be wet with it. Enough oil being pumped from any source will result is wet exhaust port so be careful how you analyze. Only takes another 15 minutes to remove the head. Look at the piston top, if there is a clean ring around the outer edge the oil is coming past the rings. Also look over the crankcase breather a reed valve, problems there can cause oil usage also. As said, Kohler sure has a nice manual and you can download it for free from their web site.

Thanks for all the info. A bit more history on the engine last spring when I got the tractor I did remove head to clean valves,piston & head.The engine showed no ring grove & factory machine marks were clear, the sparkplug had factory paint on it and was not too bad of condition.The engine had a bad flywheel.(pto shaft came off the mower deck & slapped the flywheel removing the fins) The Ariens S 16H sat for years in covered area.
