I have an engine that is exhausting thick white smoke, has pretty good power, but the smoke is so thick you can't see the yard. I think the rings are bad, but I haven't done a compression test or leak down test yet. Can anyone provide me with or steer me to a manual? Engine info is as follows;
Briggs & Stratton 15 hp OHV vert shaft engine,
