    white smoke

    96XP seems to run fine on the trailer, but there seems to be too much white smoke, more so than the other 96XP I have. I just rebuilt both boats and rejet them both with new FAs. Ideas? I would like to solve this before taking them to the water for tuning.

    Is the white smoke present when running them on the hose ??

    If so you have either a head leak or exhaust manifold leak.

    I think it may be an exhaust pipe leak, I may have broken the seal on the pipe last summer trying to fix something else. Aside from the stainless clamp, what seal do I need to put on there before I put the clamp on? Right now it is only the clamp and I see smoke coming from there too.

    There is a copper compression ring in between the exhaust pieces. I also add a lot of sealant in there too.
