A brief cloud of smoke on start up is normal for a horizontal engine, as oil leaks past the vales and into the combustion chamber when it sits. On start up, that oil instantly burns off, and creates a small puff of smoke. If it smokes for more than 15 seconds or so, then likely your oil air seperator is bad.

Whining could be the belt.
