Kohler 17.5 smoking and oil smells of gas

Hey all
My john deere L110 started smoking on start up a day after mowing. The oil has a gas fuel smell to it. And oil is blowing out themuffler. I think it is the valves? Any ideas.

It's the carburetor. You need to clean it out and replace the inlet needle. It's leaking fuel into the crankcase. You'll need to change the oil also.
