Cub Cadet LT 1018 smokes and leaks oil through fuel pump
Been doing a ton of reading about this problem and I think I've narrowed it down to the head gasket. I found the reed breather but my question is.....is there an actual breather element that could be clogged that I can't find or is the reed breather the only part? Do the reed breathers go bad?

Is oil level high? If it is not then most likely the head gasket is blown. The crankcase breather is less likely. All it does is vent crankcase unless level is too high or compression going into crankcase. A leak down test would quickly tell you though.
