Heavy Smoker

the LT is producing a bit of smoke screen on started.
Before you say they all that, its much worse since I did the clutch. Is there anything I could have mucked up that might cause it?

Re: Heavy Smoker

Changing the clutch should not have any effect on the normal oil burn at start up for an LT ( worse if left on the side stand )

I was wondering if I might have disturbed anything when I dropped the motor off the mounts.

Dropped? You did not have jack or something other to take the load?

Still.... Do not understand what (causing excessive oil consumption/burning) could have happened even if the rear end of the engine has been "dropped".

Born to be wild so why not

Re: Heavy Smoker

how far has the motor gone since job done have you given it a good run? there is nothing I can think of that would cause it from changing the clutch, oil smoke can happen if the rings or valve guide seals or piston skirt are broken/worn. if the motor fell in a flat position that wouldn't cause any problems with oil consumption.

Re: Heavy Smoker

Perhaps the breather tube was damaged and now you no longer have positive crank case pressure?

Re: Heavy Smoker

Thanks,
When I say Dropped, I mean of course gently lowered.
It not done many miles since the clutch maybe it needs a run. I will have a look at the breather,
Cheers

Re: Heavy Smoker

if the breather is ok, it sounds like you have oil in the exhaust pipe which should burn out after a good run
