    Is this Kubota a diesel? how many hours? White smoke is unburned diesel fuel, probably due to a bad injector. Not a cheap fix but in the overal scheme of things, not all that bad, either. Often, people replace all the injectors at one time.

    Amazon has Kubota diesel injectors for less than $50. I WOULD NOT BUY THEM. They're probably cheap Chinese junk.

    Talk to a Kubota dealer and get a price from them. At least then you'd be fairly sure you're getting OEM parts.

    Another option is to take yours to a reputable diesel shop and get them rebuilt.

    I couldn't find a good diesel Mechanic anywhere near me so I ended up making an appointment at a Kubota dealer to drop off the tractor..now i'm worried at what they are going to charge me but then again I need it to pull my bush hog ..the grass has to be cut...thanks johnny

    It's probably just as well.

    Replacing injectors is not as simple as it looks.
