    I sheared 2 last year when I found an old grass whip hidden in the snowbank at the end of my drive way:

    I DUNNO, I called sears, they advised me that the oil filter came lose.

    Problem is, there is no oil filter that I have found yet.

    Belts are fine, sheer pins are fine.

    There is so much smoke you don't want to run it for very long.

    That made me laugh.

    No, Heath is not allowed around it, too much potential for him to get hurt.

    It has duct tape!

    I will be checking the bolts.

    Yes, OHV, motor oil smoke, I already inspected the belts, they are happy.

    Slipping belts wouldn't produce erl smoke like you describe it. A lot of people have been having problems with the OHV motors, regardless of the manufacturer. Some speculate they produce too much torque for what the engine are designed for. I have a 7.75 B & S OHV engine on my Craftsman also (it's said to have as much torque as a typical 11-12 HP engine), but I've had nothing but outstanding results with it. Routine preventative maintainance is HUGE with the OHV engines, and I was told this when I bought mine. Thus, I spend an afternoon every spring ripping mine down, adjusting everything, changing the erl and properly gettin' 'er ready for it's summertime sleep. I've had mine now for probably close to 10 years and it's been trouble free. Again though, I'm maticulous about PM's...

    The fact that you're not LOSING any erl would be the part that leaves me scratching my melon. Almost sounds like maybe a rod or seal...
