White smoke at start-up

Hi Folks,

I need your expertise. My 1st Gen 13b blows a lot of white smoke at cold start. Once it warms-up it goes away. Any thoughts, concerns or things to check.

if it only does it when the temperature is cold outside, then it's just water condensation in the exhaust pipe turning into steam during warmup.

otherwise check for a loss of coolant. water might have leaked into combustion chamber overnight. hopefully it's not a bad water seal.
