Re: grey smoke out of exhaust - hill/slope

What would a cloud of brown smoke be? Not in an A but a ford t-bird mid 60's. I was told it hasn't run so good in awhile, oh yes some tire smoke also, my guess a rust clogged exhaust, teenager's!!!

Re: Fan Blade orientation

And the longer the engine runs the cooler it will as it breaks in! I would put a new 2 blade fan on. which pulls more air through the radiator !

Re: Generator not charging - maybe ?

Two wires coming out of generator I think is later not an A generator ? The wire going to the cut out mounting screw, I would remove and clean and reinstall ! Hopefully it's a bad ground.

The oil pipe in the rear main bearing maybe missing, plugged, too short. That pipe returns oil into the oil in your engine oil pan. Also I keep the oil level above the add line to no more than 1/2.
