Ok, at the chance of sounding like an idiot. When I changed the oil and filter I put in Castrol 10/30, the smoke started. I changed it again and went with a generic 15/40 and it stopped.
I guess I'm ok? Sounds good and runs pretty decent. I am planning a electronic ignition upgrade.
One question, I did have some white foamy bubbles in my rad. Is this a problem?
I was going to have a radiator shop check the radiator, after I get the aux. fan to operate.
Temp stays at around 175-195 right now. Have yet to here the fan kick on.
Thanks for your replies, I'm excited to learn more about my first Merc V8.
