Re: Finally Got My K5!

Regarding the white smoke, I've asked a few people who have more mechanical knowledge than I do but I've got mixed responses some say oil, some say coolant. Did a search on this forum and found a thread that had the following:

Re: White Smoke

"Smoking from an engine can be diagnosed by the old school methods. Blue smoke is oil-related. Black smoke is fuel-related. White smoke is water-related."

Is this a pretty good rule of thumb? This truck has been sitting in a barn for the last 2 years so I think I need to go through everything. But any advice on where to start?
