i have a john deere gator that has power but when i climb a hill it starts to blow pure white smoke but stays runing and when i press the pedal it just wont move until it gets out that smoke. im wondering if the motor is bad or what. i was also wondering a more powerful motor and has more speed could i possable change it out with a desiel or a more powerful kawaski motor. if i dont have to then whats that smoke all about and that power gone when i hill climb with only 3 rolls of barbed wire in the bed...

Usually smoke under a load means blow by, caused by bad rings and worn cylinders. You probably have both as well as bad clutches. If the clutches don't back shift into a lower gear when you go up a hill, it puts a strain on the motor. More weight or steeper hill, more strain. I believe a diesel motor in a 4x2 would be a monumental job, although I think someone on here did a small arrow board single cylinder air cooled diesel in something awhile back. ....
