Honda Harmony II smoking

I have a Honda Hrt2162tda that started smoking. It did this after being used on high grass were it labored and stalled frequently. When started it smokes white smoke heavily for a few minutes then stops. It will smoke off and on from light to heavy smoke. At first I thought it was the oil ring. Could this be a clogged breather. Need some input on this matter. If possible breather.. where is the breather tube on this mower..Thanks

I would start with replacing the air filter. For some reason, I've seen several mowers this year that use oil, no power etc, & an air filter was the cause. (the old ones looked pretty clean) Try a filter & let us know if it runs O.K.

Could be the oil ring, or oil level too full, or since it bogged hard in the high grass, and this is an OHV engine, I feel like it most likely is caused by a blown head gasket.
