Universal M18 issue?

Our Universal M18 starts and runs very well but will not turn up more RPM's than what I would call "Midrange". We do not have a tach but know it used to turn up more.

While doing spring maintenance on the engine, ( Change oil and filer and all fuel filters) I noticed there is a small amount of smoke coming from the breather tube and about every 15 minutes a drip of oil - drips from tube. Engine does not use any oil.

A friend of mine suggested that I replace mixing elbow.

Any suggestions???
