Ed my 8-71 in my MC-7 was making oil also, I had the oil checked and they found fuel in the oil. Pulled the valve cover and found a cracked fuel return line.

White smoke it probably dropped a valve or broke a liner and is just pumping raw fuel into that cylinder because of no compression  

good luck

Wouldn't call it white, more like a blue/light blue.

No problem leaving Yuma, i think that she just felt that all of the other buses were getting all of the attention and she felt left out so it was her turn! Grin

Going to be using Interstate after all, the other guy that Andy told me about is too busy right now to take on anybody else.
