It may have been steam from the water on the outside of the engine that caused the smoke.You mentioned in another post that the banjo was leaking. Is that the leak ? If not then is your cylinder head on tight ? Gas leaking out the muffler usually means you forgot to turn the petcock off. The only two liquids are the gas oil mixture and the gear oil in the rear hub. It does not have an " oil " tank.Try starting it and giving it throttle for 5 mimutes to evaporate any water that's in the motor area and on the wires. bruce
