    Kubota L245DT blowing smoke from little tube that hangs from engine

    Jerry, your cylinders are smooth, and your worn rings are letting compression into the engine case, and out the blowby tube.

    Service/Parts Manual

    Mr. K, a listing of manuals you have available in a sticky thread on the forum might save a lot of endless retyping.
