Default Zenoah 260 Pum smoking

When I run my 26cc Zenoah I notice smoke coming out from under the deck. I think it's coming from the engine and blowing forward that's why it's coming from under the forward deck. Anyone have ideas why it smoking. Could it be a blown gasget: Any help will be appreciated

If it's blowing forward under the deck it can come from several places. First, look for any oil on the floor of the hull. It could be a blown seal from behind the flywheel but usually that might result in poor running. Oil and exhaust leaks from flange gaskets are more of a common problem.
