Inlet valve?
by: Carl

Try fitting a service kit on the inlet valve, these sometimes get "lazy" the hot oil vapourises and when it goes offload the inlet valve closes slower than normal, oil passes back through it and smoke appears through the air intake element.
Get your inlet valve serviced then you should be ok
