I took my ‘66 out for a ride today and on the way home,we were running then pretty hard. On the final leg, I ran her up to 5,000 rpms or so and the smoke started. She smoked a couple of minutes and cleared up. Looking under the car, there are signs of transmission fluid on the exhaust pipes toward the tail shave, but I don’t see and signs of where it came from. I changed the pan and gasket last month and haven’t driven her since. She was a quart and a half low. Like I said, I know I lost some fluid, but I’m also wondering if iT was full.
Any suggestions of odd places for a high rpm leak? The odd thing is that she’s shifting fine. I’m puzzled
