    White smoke could be engine coolant in your oil. That could be a leaking head gasket or intake gasket, which could have been caused by overheating.

    wouldnt the oil in the crank case be all milky and foamy though?? It is still using about a quart every week and a half....?? no overheating probs though...just changed the radiator fluid and all looked normal...? this is baffling me.

    when you get vertical with any carb it'll tend to stall, if you were giving it a good bit of foot before you stalled, the compression could pull a little oil through the valve guides causing a bit of smoke. Probably no big deal. Oil smoke tends to have a blue hue, but sometimes it looks white.
