oil in carb and head???

My long anticipated install of a 16hp briggs is almost complete, just need the rectifiers for the charging circuit. I started this baby up and was thrilled to hear her hum, music to my ears, until there was a huge plume of white smoke pouring out the exhaust. What the heck is this? With the smile gone I got the small engine book out, no help. Then I remembered seeing a post here soI read the post and the replies but no mention of oil in the head coating the piston and intakes valve, please help if you can. Thanks Rich. P.S. I will try to create a small web page decribing my ordeal of the install when I get a chance. God bless AMERICA.....

Guessing your refering to the post just recently and none of it applys cuz you have rechecked it, I'd guess a cracked ring. Is the engine new or newly rebuildt?? sure sounds like my 16hp when the oil dipstick was working lose, it would kill every mosq. in the yard..MPH
