3gm30 - runs warm and white smoke
We are getting white smoke (strong odor of fuel) at rpm above 2k regardless of load. Not temperature related. In addition yard says engine is getting hot at 3k rpm, thinks not enough cooling water coming through.
So far, impeller replaced, mixing elbow replaced, raw water strainer checked.
They are "guessing" could be bad water pump, heat exchanger, hoses.
Is there any reason to think these two things are related?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
