  • '36 Ford, liquid comes out the tail pipe when cranked

    I have a 1936 Ford model 68 all stock. The engine cranks and run very good. It does not smoke running down the road. When it sits for a few days and is cranked, it blows what looks like a mixture of oil and gas out the tail pipe. What causes this and how can it be fixed?

      Yup. This one shoulda landed in Stove Huggers. Hard to speculate without knowing with some certainty what the fluid dripping out of the exhaust actually is.

        I dunno, maybe leaking Carb. Needle and Seat letting excess Fuel in the Cylinders and washing Oil off?

          Blown head gasket. Water mixing with black carbon deposits in exhaust system looks oily.

              It’s likely water condensed from combustion, having sat and picked up carbon along the pipe.

              After up and warm, place a cloth a few inches away from the pipe. If you don’t get much over a 5 minute idle, you’re likely fine.

                second what NCDave51 says. possible condensation.

                Are you losing any Coolant?

                    If it only lasts a minute or two, post #7 nailed it.
