I've checked my oil and head gasket all lines but my coolant is still disappearing. Was wondering if a bad intake gasket could be letting coolant into combustion chamber white smoke only at low rpms.

I checked that. when the engine is cold there's no problem but when the coolant system builds pressure and then you turn the engine off and it sits I think it's getting coolant into intake because when I come back and turn it over it blows white smoke for about 60-90 seconds that smells like antifreeze then goes away. But if I pull the radiator cap and release the pressure no coolant in exhaust on start up. I was planning on pulling the carb and intake off tomorrow. Also compression on each cylinder is right on. So I really don't think it's the head.

Did you do any maintenance recently to the intake manifold? I guess fer the price of the gasket, it probably wouldn't hurt to pull it and see. ;)

Take plugs out and crank engine and see which hole squirts out coolant. might be head, mine uses about a half gallon of water every 2 days. No spare vehicle for work. 22r 87
