    I recently bought a 03 Vermeer CX234 with an enclosed cab.. The machine currently has 800 hours and when running it smokes BLUE.

    Ive never worked on small Kubota engines... but a lot of 5.9 cummins and 6.0 powerjokes.

    What am I in for here? Head gaskets?

    Any good places to order parts from? THanks, Chris

    Does it burn oil..?
    Does the amount of smoke change cold vs hot..?
    Does it blue smoke heavily when started from cold..?

    If the answer is no to all the above then you most likely have a problem related to the fuel-system

    I will check on wednesday but if I remember correctly, the machine steadily smokes... more throttle the more smoke.
