B&S INTEK 19.5 H.P. ENGINE USED IN OUR RIDING MOWER. Everything you need to know to replace a damaged head gasket. When I first noticed that the engine had a problem I would only see a fine mist of smoke coming out of the exhaust if I was headed into the sun and I could barely smell the oil burning if the wind was just right. The next indication was I had to add oil which this engine had never required. The final indication was when it would backfire when I cut the motor off. That meant that when the engine shut down something was glowing red in the cyclinder chamber to make it fire with the ignition was turned off. Time to do something about it. Pulled plug and it was loaded up with carbon from the burnt oil which means I had a failed cylinder head gasket.
