Re: Blue smoke on John Deere tractor, still no solutions
[ QUOTE ]
Sorry, the engine only smokes at dead idle, after I rev it even 200 rpms, the smoke clears up quite a bit and has vanished by 1500 rpm.

Yep. same symptoms as mine. I usually run mine around 2500 rpm for mowing, bush-hogging and the exhaust is clear. Idling I get smoke and when I hit the throttle it will smoke but instantly clear up. The only differance mine does not burn oil and the oil is not getting any diesel in it either. I thought I had a bad injector o-ring or something but there definately is no diesel contaminating the oil either. It runs good. Idles smooth and starts great cold or warm. Just smokes blue.
