[ROVERNET - UK] Still Blow'in Steam (for Steve Lawrence)

Hello All,

I just installed a re-worked head and head gasket on
my '69 TC and
there is still white steam blowing out the tail pipe. 
I am hoping
this is residual moisture that was in the combustion
chamber, but it
has not cleared after 3 oil changes (in one day) since
the oil was
quite contaminated with coolant from the old head
gasket problem.  The
new head is level, pressure checked etc., and the
intake manifold is
in good shape and sealing well, the head bolts are
torqued down well
and to specs. The coolant level is staying up as well.
Is this residual moisture?? There was some coolant in
the combustion chamber, but I would think it would
burn off quickly. Has anybody had this problem and it
finally cleared up?

Thank you for any input you can provide.
