I drove the 69 Wednesday night. I think I finally got the rockers set right(I hope) and tuned the card a little. It smoked for most of the trip. The oil had some water in it. I need to change it and drive it some more. I was a dummy and forgot to change it after the head swap. Im hoping that the water present it antifreeze that got in the system when we removed the intake and heads.
What might cause the smoke(white/light grey)?
This weekend, I will change the oil and test drive and re-torque all my bolts.

Thanks,
Dustin

Very cool!

But you want to change that oil ASAP. Antifreeze in the oil delaminates engine bearings.

I changed the oil and filter tonight. It ran nice and zero smoke. I have to learn more about tuning Edlebrocks though. It died in reverse tonight.

I used the stock rockers. The 351W heads on the mostly stock engine like to play.
