Re: Smoke from exhaust after idling

I've noted in this topic an observation that smoke appeared after the head gasket was changed. May I assume that the carburetor was removed during that gasket change?

In the service information section of this site there is information on the quality & integrity of the carburetor base gaskets, and what might happen if the metering rod vacuum piston pressure source is restricted. (see Fuel Consumption, Excessive carburetor gaskets interchanged SC Vol22 Number 2 page 7). Perhaps that item should be added to the diagnostic list along with the subject of the host of potential difficulties with the automatic choke subsystem.
