Smoke in W60 engine compartment
I''m experiencing a tiny bit of wispy smoke coming from one side of my Westerbeke 60 engine (near raw water pump, thumb pump for bleeding, exhaust elbow, fresh water coolant reservoir, etc.).
My question is this: If the raw water pump impellor were melting or shredding, would that produce visible smoke in the engine compartment??
What else might be causing this. It is a tiny amount of barely detectable smoke (need flashlight to see it) that sometimes sets off my smoke detector; sometimes doesn''t.
Thanks for your input.
