Ford 3000 gas white smoke

Ted Fisher I have a Ford 3000 gas, unknown hours. It smokes a lot from the oil breather, white smoke. The tractor is a very slow starter, even when warm, always requires choke. Just about impossible to start without fluid below ten degrees or so. Runs fine after it starts, nice and smooth. It does use oil as well. Any thoughts?
Thanks,
Ted

ponymare Smoke from the breather tube most times means low compression from worn rings and cyl bore. Run a compression test and what you come up with.

Re: Ford 3000 gas white smoke

white smoke usually means water. check for heavy condensation in the breather tube. Just might be a bad head gasket or head. sorry...don't shoot the messenger. hope this helps
