To be honest, I couldn't tell you if it smelled like antifreeze or oil... And the latest antifreeze I put in didn't have that sweet smell like it used to that I can recall. The white smoke was just so brief of an instant and the wind wasn't in my favor to tell much. And I hate to run it too much more just to find out. But glad it sounds like I can leave the oil pan alone. I just hope that the head comes off easily, as the last time this was apart was (apparently) in 1975 -- original owner had it bored out and upgraded, as was apparently fairly typical... I guess on that front, will I need to get a different head gasket than the standard one? Or will it need modified?
