I recently finished dropping a rebuilt L28 into my '71 240z. heres my problem: before i swapped, i was beginning to notice some smoke in my exhaust, i took it to an 'imports' mechanic and he saud it was a clogged fuel pipe. the new L28 has an internally oiled cam and im still getting the smoke! Could it be my carbs, or is it my timing. Ive got rebuild kits for my SU's, but im away at college with little time and money to spare. im heading home this weekend and was hoping i could get a few pointers. Any help is appreciated, all of you guys are great. -- Brad
p.s. i had a crane cams xr700 ignition in there and despised its performance in comparioson with the origional points. I have a brand new Jacobs ignition module to install, would this, per chance, be a remedy? Thanks again, Brad

White smoke usually means a bad head gasket, or cracked head, or block. Coolant from the radiator is getting into the engine.Check your oil, does it look frothy, and maybe milky?
