What colour was the smoke and how much was there? Did it have a bluish tinge or was it blackish?

Blackish is overfuelling, bluish is oil.

Does the engine still turn over on the starter? Failure to do so could be a dropped valve or failed cam chain tensioner.

Lots of smoke could be holed piston or broken ring. A sudden production of smoke is generally not good.

Welcome aboard by the way. :2up
