    Blue Smoke And Transmission

    I am Getting blue smoke from my 2.5 motor. Am think that the smoke beening blue is not a good thing.

    What do I need to do about it beening blue? If thts a bad sign.

    Next is that when the motor starts the Transmission spur well not in gage.
    I had to replace that spur. Am not sure maybe I need to make a small
    addjustment to the spur spring.

    I just dont know please help.

    Thanks

    I would go more than a quarter turn unless you wanna replace your tranny gears often. I run 7/8 out from tight and still get wheelies on demand.
