CS12 suddenly started smoking/burning oil.

My Toro powered by the CS12 suddenly started using oil, smoking big time. I was thinking the Intake valve seal may have failed or perhaps a head gasket. It had not smoked or used any oil before between oil changes. 
   I thought I would toss it out there and see if some of you Kohler mechanic's thought I was on the right track.
  Thanks..

    Probably the head gasket, a leakdown test would confirm it.
