: After an incident of over heating, I did a valve job and surfaced the head on my 74 Tii, now there is water getting into the oil. It seems to be getting into the induction system somehow because the car smokes white smoke and the coolant gets lower. Thanks for any ideas.

Sounds like either bad head gasket or cracked head. Did the machine shop check the head for cracks when valve job was done? Your problem is SERIOUS. Don't drive car if coolant is getting in oil, you will very quickly ruin the crankshaft journals if it hasn't alredy happened.
