73 Coupe
#51
ITS ALIVE!!! I installed an electric fuel pump i got from my friend Matt that is way too aggressive but it cleared my lines out. I have a hidden switch for it in my console so i can turn it on and off. After using it you can see a noticeable amount of junk in the fuel filter and the mechanical pump is now working. Its smokes like crazy but i pretty sure i poured seafoam in the gas tank. It also needs an oil change badly! So ill do that and then i can hopefully get it tuned

i swear this car is the devil....Its running but its smoking still and appears to be burning radiator fluid....Also once it warms up the idle gets high....Ive been looking for a vacuum leak but so far i havent found one. Even tried to spray brake cleaner around the carb and no signs of a rev up or anything. ...ARG!!!!!

Starts up easy and everything....I havent played with the timing yet though ...Actually busy with a kitchen re-model so havent had much time to work on it

Is it white smoke or blue smoke? White smoke and missing antifreeze would point to blown head gasket or cracked head. Blue smoke is burning oil.

The crankcase fumes are usually oil related issues. If the car been still for long and there is some kind of condens accumulated in there, it's gonna fume bad.
So I'd start first by a good oil/filter change if you have not yet done it.
If there is no change, you likely have leaks at piston rings and the too much of oil deposited on cyl walls would likely give a blueish exhaust as it burns.
Inspecting your plugs would also tell you more, likely black/greasy.
if the exhaust is white, and coolant enters the engine, you likely have "mayonaise" in the valve covers and on the oil stick.

I'd turn the car to have the exhaust going out your garage, these gasses are very bad for your health...

yeah i dont stay in the garage when i do it.  I have changed the Oil, filter, added seafoam, added new radiator fluid, checked for bubbling in the radiator, looked for leaks, Oil isnt milky etc....So i have a few more check for sure... Smoke is either whitish and sometimes dark

Drive it, it'll probably clear up since the car's been sitting. If not, you can dig deeper.

JRANGER, not telling you what to do but that kind of glass fuel filter although looking cool is a fire hazard. The ends will come loose from vibration (No, not good vibration) and fuel will light up!

71-73 Mustangs never die, they just go faster!
