So my Dad's Craftsman ride on has some issues. It starts fine and runs well until it warms up and then it starts burning oil. Its pretty smoky and will fowl up the plug. It has a Briggs & Stratton 540cc 19hp platinum engine 33R877-0002 in it. Dad took a copression and it had 85psi but I don't know if that was cold or hot. Oil smells fine and it looks like the choke and carb are working properly.

I'm thinking valve seal or guide on the intake side or maybe even a head gasket. Figured I would ask before I dig into it.
