Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is ***** ***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible.
If you are not leaking oil, but are losing it, and smoking black smoke, the rings are allowing it by, and the rings will need to be replaced on the piston
it can be, but being as you never stated oil was in the carb, I would not assume that is was. If you have oil in the carb, then just as you have stated, the breather assembly is not functioning properly and allowing this. You are not going to lose 5-6 ounces of oil through the carb and it run just fine. That is a lot of oil to use at one time, and nothing be leaking. It sounds to me like you know what the issue is already, so I will OPT OUT so you are not charged or another expert may assist you.
