She smokes blue grey out the exhaust. When we drained the oil out of the fuel injector pump their was diesel in it??? Some neighbor say that it could be coming from the valve galley under the valve cover???
Any help would be great.
Do Ford Lehmans smoke when started up in the winter?

Do bears $hit in the woods?

Diesel is still oil. Just replace it with the same as in the crankcase when you change the oil. And don't strip the level plug.

Hey, Marin, that sounds a bit like something out of "Catch 22" . Remember the guy with a catheter at one end, and drip in the other, and the nurse just swapping the bottles as one emptied and the other filled. You must have read it. If not, I suggest you do....
