    Default M35a2 White Smoke

    Hey guys,

    So today I finally fired up my m35a2 and toke her for a drive and she blows white smoke. The truck has been sitting since May. Been redoing all the axle (brakes, seals & bearings) and putting in arb air locker in all of them. The motor ran for a go Hour today, It ran great no lose in power added clean new fuel to it today. Just blows white smoke. Any idea.


    Thanks

    Any chance it's rainwater boiling off in the exhaust pipe?

    I always cover my trucks exhaust with 3D Printed Caps I made to keep out the water in them. Also the caps work great at keeping out any thing in the exhaust and there pretty tight on the pipe. Some time I for get to remove them before I start the motor and they take off like a rocket to the moon.

    That's normal for a truck that has set and idled for awhile. Take it out and run it hard. The rings need to reseat a bit.

    ...and if that doesn't work, check your engine oil for coolant and vice versa.
