Smokey 718H

After changing the hydro fluid and filter, adjusting the shift linkage (thanks Maynard for the instructions), the hydro seems to work OK. Got the throttle adjusted ok. The problem is it still smokes! Checked the easy stuff, breather assebmly, then pulled the valve cover. The exhaust valve guide is loose in the head! :(:( Has anyone repaired a head with a loose guide? I think it probably needs a new/ rebuildable head. Anyone got one they are willing to part with? Let me know, I am also putting an ad in the parts wanted section. Thanks, GregB

The loose valve guide could be the reason for the smoke. It could be sucking oil past the valve into the combustion chamber and burning it. One of many possable causes for smoke.
