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.
